Guerrilla Girls

Guerrilla Girls are an anonymous group of feminist, female artists devoted to fighting sexism and racism within the art world. The group formed in New York City in 1985 with the mission of bringing gender and racial inequality in the fine arts into focus within the greater community. Members are known for the gorilla masks they wear to remain anonymous. They wear the masks to conceal their identity because they believe that their identity is not what matters as GG1 explains in an interview „…mainly, we wanted the focus to be on the issues, not on our personalities or our own work.“ Also, their identity is hidden to protect themselves from the backlash of prominent individuals within the art community.“ (source:

Exquisite Corpse

„Exquisite corpse, also known as exquisite cadaver (from the original French term cadavre exquis) or rotating corpse, is a method by which a collection of words or images is collectively assembled. Each collaborator adds to a composition in sequence, either by following a rule (e.g. „The adjective noun adverb verb the adjective noun“, as in „The green duck sweetly sang the dreadful dirge“) or by being allowed to see only the end of what the previous person contributed.“ (source:

„Gridcosm is a collaborative art project of the online art collective SITO, in which artists from around the world contribute images to a compounding series of graphical squares. Each level of Gridcosm is made up of nine square images arranged into a 3-by-3 grid. The middle image is a one-third size version of the previous level. Artists add images around that center image until a new 3-by-3 grid is completed, then that level itself shrinks and becomes the „seed“ for the next level. This process creates an ever expanding tunnel of images, the newest level a direct result of the previous level which is a result of the previous level… and so on.
To date, 300 artists have contributed more than 4000 levels (32000+ images) to the project.“ (source:
