Mail OUt: "Lists" Pays Bas, The NETHERLANDS

The Call: 
 The Museum of Instant Images invites you to participate in the Mail Art project on the theme of "lists". The essential nature of lists, poets who list things in their works and painters who accumulate things in their paintings. ...  Umberto Eco: The list is the origin of culture. It's part of the history of art and literature. What does culture want? To make infinity comprehensible. It also wants to create order -- not always, but often. And how, as a human being, does one face infinity? How does one attempt to grasp the incomprehensible? Through lists, through catalogs, through collections in museums and through encyclopedias and dictionaries. We also have completely practical lists -- the shopping list, the will, the menu -- that are also cultural achievements in their own right...
To accomplish Eco's infinity of lists, send me your own list, accumulation, enumeration, collection, series, account or frame, etc. in text and image.
Size and technique: free
Exhibition: Exposition in 2011
Documentation: online and sent to all participants
Deadline to be received: December 31, 2010
