Project Description

There are people who feel that their biological gender cannot describe them, neither fully nor basically. There are people who cannot identify themselves with the typical hetero-normal condition of our society. They refuse rigid gender categorizations, because these cannot properly express the multifaceted nature of human identity.

There are people who claim the right to self-determine their bodies and their desires.

My project goes out from these people with the aim to develop a discussion on the matter of gender, to start a reflection on how the concepts of masculine and feminine have been and are being created and how these consequently lead to power relations based on gender.

An analysis of gender identity in both its non-correspondence with biological sex and the resulting roles that society “prescribes”, referring not to a dichotomous reality, but far more to a fluid one, to a continuum of possible identities at whose extremes the concepts of “male” and “female” can be found.
