"From the dawn of history, they were required to be strong and fearless. They must conquer territories (and women) and protect them, function flawlessly at work (and in bed), control centers of power, and not show weakness. […] In short: they're men."
(Gabriel Bukobza / The Drama of New Masculinity)
An exhibition by men only – graduates and lecturers of the Musrara Art School. Does "feminine" and "masculine" art exist, and who determines the aesthetic lines of each one? Is there room for the "manly man" artist? Under what category does an artist, a man, who decides to use fragility and tenderness in his works fit? How does contemporary masculinity define itself in art and in general?
This is an exhibition of divided, hesitant and complex masculinity that seeks to re-establish itself in reality and in cultural representations. Dealing with masculinity—in space and in discourse—that changes through different mediums – from photography to sound installations.
