Ephemera was a monthly journal of mail & ephemeral work consisting of contributions received daily through the international network of mail art. Edited by Ulises Carrión, Aart van Barneveld, Anna Banana and Salvador Flores and published in 12 numbers by Other Books and So, Amsterdam.
“Ephemera testifies to Carrión’s idea of mail art as a “cultural strategy” that rejects notions of subjectivity and authorship, “revealing an immense diversity in the aesthetics, conception, and geographical origins of the works."______Guy Schraenen
