Performing masculinity

Masculinities - its various forms, symbols, habitus – are inherently performed, in public spaces or at home, as everyday routines or as conscious enactments. What readings of “the masculine” are visible, exposed and popular, also reflects what is enacted in cultural spaces such as stages and screens – whereas the stage or screen may serve as the medium for a critical interrogation, a re-writing or also consolidation of dominant practices.

This series on “Performing Masculinities” invites to interrogate the performances of masculinities both in the everyday and on stages and screens.
