Perhaps now more than ever, the so-called ‘male experience’ is being interrogated and rethought. What does it mean to identify as a man? More pressing still, how exactly should we understand masculinity - as a set of characteristics and behaviours - and who can claim ownership of it?

As binaries are broken and gender roles are blurred, the once very fixed position of masculinity has been dislodged. Elephant speaks with five artists who are shaking off the restraints of this way of being and suggesting new possibilities. 

Also featured: encounters with Ai Weiwei, Tracey Emin, Eva Vermandel, Yinka Shonibare, William Monk, and two young painters, Oli Epp and Ben Sledsens.
