Men From Behind

Men From Behind was a performance workshop with artist Paul Hughes that looked at the (de)gendering of penetration as masculine and penetrability as feminine.

Inspired by Jonathan Kemp’s book, The Penetrated Male, 10 artists from different backgrounds met at ]performance space[ in Folkestone to consider how to shift the binary of penetration from ‘masculine / feminine’ to neither / nor’ using live performance, and how to situate this potentially obscene figure in public.

The workshop was kindly supported by Live Art Development Agency and ]performance space[ as part of DIY Gateway, supported by Jerwood Charitable Foundation.
