The Missing Men are not located in a geographical region in this
world, but rather in a space within the masculine world at large; it
is not a hierarchical order consisting of fathers and sons but
rather a horizontal space where men like the Munshi, the Genie in
the bottle or Borat exist.
Seeing these masculinities through the subjective “non-Oriental”
lens demolishes stereotypes and opens doors for diversity and
tolerance. This project aims to put forward and open a space for
masculinities to exist that were and are subordinated and feminized
by the dominant world cultures through legends, myths and lies.
