"Padín himself received some of the harshest treatment at the hands of the authoritarian government. 'In 1974, during the Uruguyan military dictatorship, I organized the first Latinoamerican Mail Art exposition at Galeria U. in Montevideo, Uruguay. My edition of apocryphal mail art stamps denounced the dictatorial regime for its brutal suppression of Uruguay’s human rights and this eventually led to my imprisonment from August, 1977 to November, 1979.'"

"In 1974, I published my first issue of VILE magazine, a parody of both LIFE and an artist produced magazine, FILE, after FILE published disparaging remarks about mail-art, which it had initially championed, but was now disowning. My intention in publishing VILE, was to provide a showplace for and documentation of the works of mail-artists. With assistance from the Coordinating Council of Literary Magazines, it did just that. After doing the first three issues, the editorship alternated between myself and Bill Gaglione who experimented with other formats, but continued documenting mail-art.” artpool.hu
