The Mask: Being Another

Beatriz Jaguaribe

Masks: ecstasy, anonymity and contagion


Researcher Beatriz Jaguaribe, one of the great experts in the artistic production of urban Brazil, talks about everyday forms of masking.

The human face hidden by the mask has been part of contemporary street photography in two radically different situations: carnival celebration and pandemic contagion. Based on the work of contemporary photographers, Jaguaribe analyze the extreme situations of contact and rejection to which anonymity in the street leads us. What identities does the mask configure in contemporary Brazil? How is masking expressed in its urban fabric?
