stamp alive
`stamp alive`is a project with the themes of communication and cultural exchange and as a result an edition of stamps by German and Namibian artists.

The focus of the project is the postage stamp.
The initiator and artist Carola Rümper has invited 10 Namibian and 10 German artists to participate in the project. Rümper invited all artists to provide her with a motif of their own work. Each motive was produced as an original stamp from the Namibian Post and the Deutsche Post Company. At the end, the stamp editions are an exhibition in miniature.

Since the invention of the postage stamp, each nation's stamp has also been used for the presentation of the own identity. National symbols and values as well as heads of state are distributed throughout the world by the stamp.

The symbol "stamp" served as an occasion to initiate a Namibian-German network of artists.
At the discursive exchange between the artists of both countries, a communication platform is created by means of the stamp.

First presentation January - march 2018 at the National Art Gallery of Namibia
