Under the title To Whom It May Concern, the mail art project BILAGA has invited nine artists to reflect on freedom of expression. Who can we address? Of what and to whom are we entitled to speak? Can we say whatever we want, and do we have something to say to one another?
The artists represent a range of geographical and ideological backgrounds, what unites them are that their works are briefly collected here in Gothenburg before being mailed out across the world.
The works are printed in an unlimited edition on A3 paper. All visitors are welcome to take a copy, fold it into an envelope, write an address of their choice, add a postage stamp and slip the work of art into a letterbox – to whom they think it would concern.
The mail art exhibition is part of Gothenburg International Biennial Extended 2017
Supported financially by the City of Gothenburg and GIBCA Extended.
