Franck Bohbot - This Game We Play, 2013

"This Game We Play is an ongoing project by French photographer Franck Bohbot. After moving to New York from France, he began to photograph basketball hoops of different neighborhoods to portray the streetball playgrounds of New York. Not even including one single person, Bohbot isolates the main focus, the hoop, and offers a view of the different atmospheres, colours and shapes of the city; different backdrops and styles of courts, rusted poles, and fresh paints. Shooting an architecturally interesting object, which is strongly bound in the context of its surroundings." [Transparent Cities]

For his ongoing project titled “Brand New Paint Job,” artist Jon Rafman transforms domestic and familiar settings by imagining them as classic paintings. Using recognizable patterns and paintings from artists such as Basquiat, Lichtenstein, Picasso, Monet, O’Keeffe, Haring, Duchamp, de Kooning, and Matisse, Rafman wraps nurseries, living rooms, bedrooms, and familiar television sets like Star Trek, Jeopardy!, and Seinfeld, turning these works into 3D living spaces.

Gendertheory and privileges allow everyone who’s slightly uncomfortable with their mediocrity to identify as the most special snowflake of them all. 
All identities are equal, but some identities are more equal than others. 



Femininity: Feared and Reviled

The paradox: masculinity is strength, power, and dominance… but femininity is terrifying. Gender rules insist that men must avoid association with the feminine at all costs because, if they do not, they are weak. They are pussies, bitches, women, girls. Femininity is weakness and yet, oddly, it has the power to strip men of their manliness. It is as if, as sociologist Gwen Sharp once put it, “masculinity is so fragile that apparently even the slightest brush with the feminine destroys it.”

Let’s be clear. The reason he’s afraid of femininity is because it’s reviled. It makes you a woman, which makes you worthless. Which is fine for the ladies, but dudes are advised to avoid personal denigration if at all possible.

Thanks Summer’s Eve, you make my job easy.
