Guerrilla Girls

Interesting presentation at the MOMA about the infamous Guerilla Girls. If you’re not familiar with them here’s a blurb from their website.

“We’re a bunch of anonymous females who take the names of dead women artists as pseudonyms and appear in public wearing gorilla masks. We have produced posters, stickers, books, printed projects, and actions that expose sexism and racism in politics, the art world, film and the culture at large. We use humor to convey information, provoke discussion, and show that feminists can be funny. We wear gorilla masks to focus on the issues rather than our personalities. Dubbing ourselves the conscience of culture, we declare ourselves feminist counterparts to the mostly male tradition of anonymous do-gooders like Robin Hood, Batman, and the Lone Ranger. “

    I’d like to see how this relates to Beautiful/Decay. How many female artists have you published on both your webpage and magazine in relation to male artists?

    Hi Mar, That’s a great question. Feel free to do the math and let us know how we score. I try not to let gender play a role in our content. We’ve had issues where we feature 99% women and others where it’s almost all men. My rule of thumb is to publish work we believe in regardless of gender, age, race, sexual preference…etc.
