Like a spider in a web

Wolf-Rehfeldt's typewritings seek proximity to visual and concrete poetry, tend toward the abstract, the concrete, and the architectural, and are expanded into collages, especially in the 1980s. With these graphics, Wolf-Rehfeldt actively participated in the GDR's Mail Art program and built up an extensive communication network that spanned the globe.
