The RE/defining Masculinities Monologues

Neal Leemput on choosing the colour that fits

The RE/defining Masculinities video series is a social media campaign which presents different people and their perspectives on the concept of masculinity in personal monologues. The videos include voices from different people in Belgium, the Netherlands and Finland.

The video campaign was initiated by the Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux as part of the RE/defining Masculinities project, and the videos were filmed and edited by the Finnish media artist Timo Wright. The monologues have been shared throughout the year 2019 on the Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux's social media, and are screened as part of the RE/defining Masculinities autumn programme.

A special thanks to Krista Autio and K41 in Brussels, for offering us space to film some of the Belgian monologues.
