Herchive Book: Volume I

Herchive is a visual archive of women and non-binary artists throughout history. It began in 2019 as a digital project to address the lack of visibility and representation of women in art history, with the first gallery retrospective in March 2020 at Ó! Galeria Lisboa in Portugal. The opening doubled as a launch for this 96-page hardcover book, showcasing the artwork in the exhibition.

As copy editor, I worked alongside Herchive founders and illustrators Bárbara Fonseca, Inês Costa, Marta Duarte Dias and Patrícia Mafra to edit the biographies accompanying each portrait.

Featuring 39 female and non-binary artists from 10 CE to today, all book sale profits were donated to feminist union Umar Feminismos and feminist documentation centre and archive Elina Guimarães.
