Merry Christmas //Richard (2013 version)
Digital printed A6 postcards, edition of 50

For the 2nd year in a row I decided to send out 50 numbered christmas cards to art institutions I want to establish or maintain a good relationship with.
It is also a way of critiquing how artists must "suck up" to big (and small) institutions. In a way I am also giving away a limited edition set of art prints. However, I am very sincere in my wish of creating a good working relationship with these places. I am not sure if the postcards are actually helping my artistic career or not.
The institutions are on very different levels, ranging from small non-profit organizations to MoMA, in New York.


The postcards all have the same design as those which were sent out in 2012. For the 2012 version of the project, please click here.

Last year I received four responses. Those who replied got a postcard this year as well.

Have you or an institution you represent recieved a postcard and want to reply? Please send me an email: richard.krantz@hotmail.com
