In Oisteanu's words, “Po-Collage or Poetry-collage” has text and images...not like a scrap book, but as a unified artwork: text + image = po-collage. The whole of po-collage becomes totally different than the sum of its parts. I started doing po-collages as a daily diary in Bucharest, Romania in the 60’s as a form of protest and also encoding my poetry in a such a way that the secret police did not get my anti-communist messages in the mail-art that I created."
