FRIOUR project 13 is on rebellion, contestation, protest in all its meanings: artistic, political, social, cultural, historical and present ones. I dedicate this 2012 project to all mail artists who have told me they like my art but PLEASE Guido stay away from politics! They are forgetting that all the great art movements of the modern past (Dada, Surrealism, Cobra, Situationism) were involved in attempts to change society. So REBEL REBEL aka the essence of art expressions by artists in society

IN SUPPORT OF MUMIA
Small painted envelope for MUMIA: speak softly but with conviction, even when your nose is bleeding!
Since his conviction, his case has become an international cause célèbre, and he has become a controversial cultural icon. Supporters and opponents disagree on the appropriateness of the death penalty, whether he is guilty, or whether he received a fair trial. During his imprisonment he has published several books and other commentaries, notably Live from Death Row (1995).
Mumia was recently taken off death row and his sentence changed to life imprisonment, in response to popular support and activisim.
We've received news that Mumia has now been transferred to SCI-Mahanoy, another prison in Pennsylvania. He is in "Administrative Segregation", he is not in general population yet. We need to let those administrators know, immediately, that we know Mumia is there and that the WORLD is watching. People need to flood the prison with calls and flood Mumia with postcards (Mumia needs to know that we have his back). ----
