TO THE POINT
Ève Magot, 2021
If gravity is a universal law, masculinity is a social construction and as such, it can be questioned.
In his book Refusing to be a Man: Putting an End to Masculinity, John Stoltenberg starts from the premise that masculine identity as a social relationship must be transformed to achieve true equality.
Can we refuse to be a man and invent hybrid identities?
The starting point is a reflection around the concept of masculinity and the concrete exploration of what people assigned male at birth do to get out of the field of a masculinity of domination that implies a contemporary patriarchal society generating injustices.
Erotic and sexual dances are very largely interpreted by women who put themselves under the gaze by respecting a rather precise codification.
What happens when a person assigned male at birth chooses to integrate these codes and to offer herself in turn, to seduce, to tease, to put herself in a position of fragility and under the gaze that scrutinizes? And this not in the classic register of Chippendales which remains virilist.
Who do we become when we sexualize ourselves?
Why are men afraid of not being perceived as men anymore?
A game with other possibilities in tenderness, a construction of another future more just, that pleases me and carries a necessary political dimension of transformation.
