@BarbicanCentre very disappointed to find that both Bonfire Restaurant and the Members lounge are closed today. My first visit as a member, I’m not impressed, you should advertise the fact if you’re closing facilities

Personally I refuse to stop going because 5% can't behave. It's too important to me. Happy to consider other alternatives but I'm blowed if I can think of any. Signal jammers are illegal, unfortunately

The answer is clearly NO. So we now have to treat people like children
“Set against the backdrop of #MeeToo movement, when manhood is under increasing scrutiny, an investigation of this subject is particularly timely. Embracing the idea of multiple ‘masculinities’ and rejecting the notion of singular ‘ideal man’, the exhibition argues for understanding of masculinity liberated from societal expectations and gender norms.” #mustsee#postpatriarchalmasculinity#masculinities#barbicancentre

Went to this exhibit at the @barbicancentre yesterday and I honestly haven’t stopped thinking about it since.
It was very cool to see a thoughtful exploration of transmasculinity in the exhibition, and also other themes like masculinity during the AIDS crisis and the MeToo movement. My brain is very tired but it was very cool

Today I visited the ‘Masculinities: Liberation through Photography’ exhibition at the Barbican. It explores the ‘diverse ways masculinity has been experienced, performed, coded and socially constructed in photography and film from the 1960s to the present day’. A key reference, which helps to structure the exhibition, is Simone de Beauvoir’s famous declaration ‘one is not born a woman, but rather becomes one’. Femininity and masculinity are constructed states of being, and their definitions and norms vary between countries and cultures. It is an interesting exhibition and worth visiting, particularly if you are aged 14-25 and sign up as a Young Barbican, as tickets are £5. I thought it was important to share here, because masculinity is a major player in society and a force which impacts on EVERYONES ability to ‘just be’.
