Yasmina Reza's art or the deep vulnerability of the masculine

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Three men in the play "Art" by Yasmina Reza Dans « Art » (1994), behave in the typical way described by French sociologist Pierre Bourdieu in La Domination masculine (1998). They compete with each other, putting a lot of energy in asserting their virility and investing into activities that prove their masculinity. A conflict, futile at first glance, puts their friendship in jeopardy, and signals the emergence of modernity, as a metaphore for the 'deep vulnerability' of the masculine analysed by Bourdieu.
