The Mask Never Lies

The Mask: Being Another

Accompanying the exhibition "The Mask Never Lies", these debates will approach masking today from the ambivalent relationship between anonymity and subversion. In a context of multiplying forms of social control and surveillance, the mask has an emancipatory potential, but it can also serve to cover up anonymous violence. During the pandemic, masks have become the daily threshold that allows us to find ourselves and at the same time separates us from others through fear of contagion. What are the contemporary forms of masking? How do they affect relations with the other?
