In conjunction with Secret Agent, a group exhibition composed from the viewpoint of feminist authorship in contemporary art practices, participants are invited to gather together to edit and create Wikipedia entries on women in the history of photography.

About

The sub-heading of the event - Women in Photography - is borrowed from the popular conference meeting held at Tate in November 2015. The edit-a-thon is inspired by the artist's practices of redefining and revisiting histories at the Secret Agent travelling exhibition. It also joins forces with active edit-a-thon events to balance the male dominated authorship and subject matters on the Wikipedia.

Our editorial hub at Guest Projects, London will facilitate participants in gaining a working understanding of Wikipedia, further empowering them to create and expand our collective knowledge on the history of women in photography. It will also take advantage of the internet's freedom of access to invite participants from all over the world to make histories available to people. Subjects include biographical information on artists and their exhibition/publishing histories.
