Wikimedia Foundation found that less than 10% of its contributors identify as female.
While the reasons for the gender gap are up for debate, the practical effect of this disparity is not. It represents an alarming absence in an increasingly important repository of shared knowledge.
Art + Feminism invites people of all gender identities and expressions, particularly transgender, cisgender, and gender nonconforming women, to address this absence through an in-person, communal updating of Wikipedia’s entries on art and feminism.
In collaboration with ƒƒ, Berlin and Mathilde ter Heijne, the second Berlin Art + Feminism event will take place:
Sunday March 20th 2016
13:00 – 18:00
Haus am Lützowplatz, Berlin/ Germany,
Within the exhibition “It Will Be!” by Mathilde ter Heijne
