"While some welcomed the medium being put into an art-historical context, others fought the process. Despite the contrasting positions, one thing had become obvious: Mail Art had become self-conscious of its role as an alternative art form, generating a significant history begging for examination."

“Tisma did also his first Mail-Art project called 'Mail-Art Olympic Games', in conjunction with the 14th 'Winter Olympic Games' in Sarajevo. This Mail-Art project resulted in three exhibitions. But before these exhibitions, it was installed in a television studio in his home town in February 1984 and first shown on the television. This was realised in co-operation with the 'Novi Sad Television' in the program Sunday Afternoon and broadcasted in whole Yugoslavia during the 'Winter Olympic Games'. After that it went first to the 'Forma Gallery' in Novi Sad. Second exhibition was in Sarajevo, at the 'Museum of XIV Winter Olympic Games', in 1985. It was the first ever Mail-Art show in Sarajevo, combined with a lecture about Mail-Art by Tisma. The third exhibition was in Calgary in 1986, in Chuck Stake's (Canada) 'The Canadian Correspondence Art Gallery'. Transport of the exhibition was sponsored by the Sarajevo Olympic museum. The contributions to his first Mail-Art project he received in two months time and was participated by 120 artists from twenty countries.” Decker, Geert de: Mail-Art Encyclopedia, 2003
