Klaus Groh is a German artist and author born in Neisse in 1936. He helped bring American Mail Art to Europe and connected the West with Eastern Europe, especially Poland and the former GDR. He also led the Micro Hall Art Center and the Kleinkunstbühne Literaturium cabaret stage from 1971 to 2006, as well as the International Artists' Cooperation (IAC) from 1969 to 1990. He also edited the IAC publication "IAC-INFO", a Mail Art predecessor. Credo is listed in the Archive of Artist Publications as Groh's first work; as of May 2020, WorldCat locates only a single holding in a North American institution.
