Rivane Neuenschwander ‘Mapa-mundi BR (postal)’ 2007

Rivane Neuenschwander’s unique and multifaceted practice reflects on language, the natural world and the passing of time. Neuenschwander’s Mapa-mundi BR (postal) 2007 draws on the artist’s interest in language and the legacies of conceptual art traditions. The work’s serial presentation and the artist’s use of the international mail network to disseminate the work also links to a ‘proto-globalism’, which characterised the mail-art networks of Fluxus art in the 1960s and 1970s.
