The missing blackboard in the time of Corona

The missing blackboard in the time of Corona, 2021, digital artwork, displays figures of women climbing up a frail scaffolding of mathematical formulae scribbled on a blackboard in the office of an Italian colleague. According to ACHYAP, “during the pandemic, we mathematicians longed for shared blackboards where mathematics are built and discussed”. Through this work she also wanted to show the struggle of women to make it up the ladder of the mathematical community and to underline that this became even more difficult during the pandemic when both work and family life took place in the same space.

ACHYAP is a mathematics professor and artist from France.
