Judith A. Hoffberg (ed.): Umbrella (1978–2008)

6 April 2014, dusan

Umbrella was a newsletter-magazine edited and published by Judith A. Hoffberg from 1978 until 2008. In her work, Hoffberg enthusiastically championed Fluxus, inexpensive artists’ books, mail art, rubber-stamp art, and many other offbeat forms of expression of the second half of the 20th century all of which found their way into Umbrella in the form of interviews, news and reviews.

Géza Perneczky credits Umbrella as “perhaps the most comprehensive and most usable unofficial source of information” on mail art and artists’ publications during the period from 1978 to 1984. (in The Magazine Network, 1993: 12)
