Bismarck call from Roland

Freitag, Juli 17th, 2009

For quite a while I was too busy for mail art. But here we go again.

After his exciting call for mail on Andreas Hofer with so many great contributions (there are still cards arriving!) Roland started a new call: Otto von Bismarck, one of the well-known German politicians and a very interesting ambiguious charakter. Great to know that there will be an exhibition!

My collage cards arrived:

(Der Lotse geht von Bord)

(Der Laotse geht von Bord)

Greetings from Saigon

In (West-) Germany, his image is the one of the young and smart President, a man of action, encouraging people. Until today almost everyone knows his sentence „I am proud to say: Ich bin ein Berliner“. And as you can see on the stamp, he stands for the Apollo program.

On the other hand, there is the Vietnam war – no one here links it to JFK. So, the card is not to proclaim any „truth“ but wants to focus on this aspect of the Janus-like JFK.
