ArtHyve is thrilled to announce that founding member of the Guerilla Girls, Kathe Kollwitz will be giving a lecture/performance and leading a workshop as a part of ArtHyve’s 3rd Annual Art+Feminism, Wikipedia Edit-a-thon. The Guerilla Girls are a world-famous Feminist artist/activist collective. Wearing gorilla masks in public, they use facts, humor and outrageous visuals to expose gender and racial bias as well as corruption in politics, art, film, and pop culture.
Art + Feminism is a national event aimed at addressing the gender gap. In a 2011 survey, the Wikimedia Foundation found that less than 10% of its contributors were womxn. While the reasons for the gender gap are up for debate, the practical effect of this disparity is not: content is skewed by the lack of representation from womxn.
