THE (NON) OBJECTIVITY OF WIKIPEDIA
Invisibilities focuses on exposing the digital gaps in architecture. Architects, movements, ideas or projects that have been dismissed, forgotten, or discriminated against by the discipline of architecture are introduced for discussion and documentation. A series of presentations by experts who specialize in research on minority-driven movements, women in architecture, African-American practices, and other architectural "invisibles" will precede a Wikipedia editing workshop led by a group of activists who work to give forgotten architecture a presence on Wikipedia.
