Still Figuring Out What It Means to be a Man

This multi-media exhibition arose against a backdrop of increasing gender-based and sexual violence perpetrated by men in South African society, that has prompted a growing focus on masculinity. The controversial hashtag #menaretrash has gained significant ground lately, leading to fervent discussions about men and masculinity, and the idea of a possible “crisis in masculinity” across South Africa. Taking an empathetic view of individual men, but a critical one of the oppressive system of patriarchy, this project considers various aspects of manhood and masculinity in today’s South Africa.
