„Klaus Groh – „aktuelle kunst in osteuropa” 1972
Panel discussion with the participation of Klaus Groh and Hannelore Huck-Groh
about Groh’s publication from 1972, the history of the book, the circumstances of the edition/production, the memories of the participants
Moderated by Dávid Fehér
Coordinated by: Vera Lájer
Klaus Groh has developed from 1969 an important art network growing and effective for decades and mainly active in the field of mail art. The little IAC (International Artists’ Cooperation) publications edited / published / produced by him, the exhibitions at the art spaces operated by him (Micro Hall Art Center or Literaturium) as well as his continuous participation in international mail art, visual and sound poetry projects made Groh a significant hub of the correspondence art network in Germany.
At the exhibition in Artpool P60 – along the mail art, conceptual works and letters sent to each other – we can have an insight into the decades long relationship of Klaus Groh and György Galántai / Artpool, who had similar activities and played a similar role in Hungary.
