Mail art by Erni Baer (Hamburg, Germany)

Erni Baer is a bonafide Legend of Trashpo. I believe he has changed the face of mail art during the last six years. Unfortunately, his current relation to Trashpo is unclear due to a series of events I call the Fan Club Wars.

While Erni Baer contributed to the invention of Trashpo, he never embraced DKult, choosing instead to embrace a cult devoted to himself (that is devoted to Ernie) founded by the chimerical Grigori Antonin. Yes, this is all obscure and complicated. Trashpo and DKult will eventually have to re-assess its current relation to Erni Baer. I believe history will be kind to Erni Baer. In the meantime, I am thrilled to include him in the Karnival of Trash. He certainly has a place here.
