Men From Behind

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

Inspired by Jonathan Kemp’s book, The Penetrated Male, 10 – 12 artists from different backgrounds will meet 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 is kindly supported by Live Art Development Agency and ]performance space[ as part of DIY Gateway, supported by Jerwood Charitable Foundation.
