Annette Messager - Masculinities, Liberation through Photography Gropius Bau

Masculinities: Liberation through Photography explores the ways in which masculinity is experienced, performed and socially constructed, from the 1960s to the present day. 

Women on Men: Reversing the Male Gaze

As the second-wave feminist movement gained momentum throughout the 1960s and 1970s, women activists sought to expose and critique entrenched ideas about masculinity, articulating alternative perspectives on gender and representation. Against this background, or motivated by its legacy, the artists here have made men their subject with the intention of subverting their power, calling into question the notion that men are active and women passive. 

In the early 1970s, pioneers of feminist art, such as Annette Messager, consciously objectified the male body in a bid to expose the uncomfortable nature of the dominant male gaze.
