Masc* for No Category

This mix tape titled Masc* for No Category crosses through and resonates alongside the exhibition Masculinities: Liberation through Photography. Troubling categorical and archetypical representations of masculinities and resonating with thinkers such as Paul B. Preciado, Audre Lorde and Andrea Long Chu: the work follows re-representations of patriarchal masculinity in and outside of the exhibition. In doing so striving towards an appreciation of the desire for non-normativities that are already there.

This Listening Party was part of the exhibition program: Masculinities: Berlin Perspectives at the Martin Gropius Bau, Berlin, D.E.
