MEN – seven artists, seven gazes – was intended to make the public reevaluate the male body as aesthetic object and to sensitize the spectator while simultaneously questioning our ideas and emotions on the subject. In the words of Julio Cortazar, it aimed to “soften jagged edges”.
MEN – seven artists, seven gazes – also attempted to incite thought, new perceptions and cognitions surrounding the construction and stereotipification of masculinity. By enriching our perception and understanding of the masculine the exhibit was intended to activate our sensibility and emotional intelligence instead of our pre-existing or prejudiced opinions.
