Masculinities In Conversation: Karen Knorr and Anna Fox / Barbican

Layout from Ann Fox's book 'My Mother's Cupboards and My Father's Words'

Join photographers Karen Knorr and Anna Fox in conversation, as they discuss the aesthetics and socio-political issues explored in their photography.

Photographers Anna Fox and Karen Knorr sit in conversation with Sabina Jaskot-Gill, Curator of Photographs at the National Portrait Gallery. The discussion explores the aesthetic questions and socio-political issues broached by two important series of work presented in Masculinities: Knorr’s Gentlemen (1981–83) and Fox’s My Mother’s Cupboards and My Father’s Words (2000).

Through the medium of film and photography, Masculinities: Liberation through Photography considers how masculinity has been coded, performed, and socially constructed from the 1960s to the present day.
