Fitness studios, self-improvement, male fashion – what makes a man a man? What is he made of in an age of authoritarian political leaders, barbershops and unisex toilets? The return of traditional role models and sensational #-campaigns really stirs up XY’s self-awareness. In a performative self-experiment, Marcel Nascimento faces the challenge and sheds light on the discussion of “true masculinity”.
