Ants and Mail Art

Ants are marching all over the mail art archive at KUNSTEN Museum of Modern Art in Denmark. This is one of many examples: A Mogens Otto Nielsen print with ants returned from Stefanie Amrein in Schwitzerland. The ant is  a great metaphor for the  workings of the mail art network, I think. There are a lot, they are in all the cracks, staying close to the ground.

The ants (always plural) are a great metaphor for the workings of the mail art network, I think. They are all over the place, in all the cracks, staying close to the ground.
