Fragile Masculinity

So much of my research and work for uni seems to be exploring the position of the girl as an internalised malady. Yet, with the Ardorous and Rookie and Meadham Kirchoff, and just teen tumblr culture in general, it makes me question whether there's all that much actually left to explore in my own work. I mean for critical writing and curatorial practice there definitely is, but for my own actual aesthetics and art work I'm not so sure. I don't mean that it in a bitter way, I love all of things mentioned above, I just feel like I need to approach things from a different angle. This is what led me to start exploring the culture of masculinity, a topic which, self reflexivity wise is actually way more relevant to my own identity. I'm really excited to explore the topic in more detail, but, for no, have a rather far-reaching moodboard type thing.
