How Heather Dewey-Hagborg Is Highlighting Gender Disparities in Art and Technology

Heather Dewey-Hagborg

D&S artist-in-residence Heather Dewey-Hagborg was quoted in this piece discussing her protest of Ars Electronica Festival’s gender disparities.

“As women in art and tech we are consistently under-recognized, under-funded, and written out of history,” Dewey-Hagborg told the Guardian, which first reported the story. “We are made to feel that our work must simply not be as good as that of our male peers, and if only we made better work we would attain the same accolades and accomplishments as they did. Last year I finally realized that this was bullshit.”
