silence in art – a mail art project

“Where can we find silence in art? Do we look for emptiness in paintings? Is silence perhaps more manifest in abstract art? Looking for answers to these questions, the imaginary Museum of Silence in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, organized a mail art project: Silence in Art. The contributions presented in this book show that silence is a very challenging and inspring theme for artists from all over the world. May you enjoy this book in silence!”
