Paul Celan`s Poems

Exhibition in Serbia

(Some shots of the vernissage)

Paul Celan (23 November 1920, Cernăuţi, Bukovina, Kingdom of Romania, current Chernivtsi, Ukraine - c. 20 April 1970, Paris) was a poet and translator. He was born as Paul Antschel into a Jewish family in Romania, becoming one of the major German-language poets of the post-World War II era.

"Only one thing remained reachable, close and secure amid all losses: language. Yes, language. In spite of everything, it remained secure against loss. But it had to go through its own lack of answers, through terrifying silence, through the thousand darknesses of murderous speech. It went through. It gave me no words for what was happening, but went through it. Went through and could resurface, 'enriched' by it all."

Collecting - Mail Art Project


Library Exhibition20/02/2011 - ongoing
Opening: Sunday, 20 February 2011 15:00

Thousands of people have special collections which vary from stamps, coins, wrappers of cigars to meaningful words and fond memories. Why do we collect? And how? Many contemporary artists use ‘collecting’ to visualise their artistic concept. They also have the ability to put the principles of collecting into one postcard. The third part of Play van Abbe was about collecting. This was an inspiration for the library exhibition Collecting – Mail Art Project.

For Mail Art project Miranda Vissers has asked interested artists to contribute to this project by means of a postcard, attuned to the theme of collecting. This resulted in more than 250 submissions: postcards, drawings, etchings, paintings, collages, photographic and textile works. All Mail Art works are exhibited in the showcases of the library of the Van Abbemuseum and on the weblog. Also a selection of the Mail Art archives of the museum and the organisers is exhibited. The catalogue shows one work of each artist
