Dictionary of non-notable Artists
Every day, people on Wikipedia nominate articles for deletion and discuss whether they should remain in the encyclopedia or not. It is done on a sub page called Articles for deletion. A frequent reason for exclusion of an entry is non-notability. After I had a look at those discussions, the article about my own person, Gregor Weichbrodt, ironically became nominated for deletion from the German Wikipedia, too. The anonymous person that put me on the list wrote Completely misses notability criteria for authors. Unsatisfying notability criteria for artists too. I wrote a Python script to download the contents of every articles for deletion-page from the past ten years and filter the results by artistic occupation. I saw that I was not alone in my fate and that there were many more non-notable artists in this world who also failed to meet the notability criteria. This book is dedicated to these artists. (With thanks to Kathrin Passig and Hannes Bajohr for discussions on the matter, and Christiane Frohmann for pointing out the Wikipedia pages and suggesting a poetic project. Further thanks go to to Karl Flender, Vicki Bennett, Ranjit Bhatnagar, Carl Bamber and Julia Pelta Feldman.)
