A piece exploring ideas about masculinity, empathy and cruelty and art as research.
From 2019 this article ticks two boxes that interest me. Discussions about what constitutes masculinity and an example of art used as a form of research. Given an assumption that the patrriarchy still dominates power, then ideas about what it is to be a man must lie at the centre of patriachal power. These ideas hurt everyone, including those men in power. Researching this through words and images are presented for witnessing, like quantitative research is submitted to peer review. The responce is ambiguous, personal, situational and emergent, like art. This is a great collection of photography and journalism as research.
