Women & The Media - "You can’t be what you can’t see"

[Web, 22 April 2014] An intriguing investigation about the visibility of women in European media

Many newsrooms start their day with sifting through the papers. If women already are invisible as experts, inevitably that will be the case in all other media.

For a period of four months we cut out all pictures of men and women from 136 randomly selected editions of newspapers (87 titles, 22 countries). After the cutting we posted the pictures on long sheets. Men and women separated. It collects 138 meters of footage! Also containing the paper ads. If you quickly browse a newspaper, it all seems so bad to coincide with the imaging. Until you just pull out the pictures and paste them consecutively.
