Art et Communication Marginale : Art and Marginal Communication, Rubber Art, Stamp Activity

description

"Contemporary artistic approaches show that communication has become the principal focus in the research of artists wishing to transcend the social vacuum surrounding avant-garde works. Since they are marginal men, artists must recreate marginal media. It is surprising to discover that the counter-use of a commonplace object - the rubber stamp - by artists rather than by bureaucrats, in their correspondence, is a kind of tribal tom-tom, that reveals the existence of a vivid sub-culture with its values and structures, critical of their contemporary society." -- Hervé Fischer.
