This Naked Incident is a deep dive in search of the place that 'masculinity' holds in the lives of young people today.

"In the conversations we had with our friends in their spaces of comfort, it became even more apparent to us that gender, following Judith Butler, and therefore masculinity, is performative."

Alexander van der Heide and Sander Coers spoke with five peers; all assigned male at birth and all with very different experiences of masculinity and equally different gender expressions. Because what is masculinity? Where it sometimes seems that we have no more than stereotypes to resort to in our efforts to make this tangible, it turns out there are specific moments, charged by the people around you, and the places where you are, that suddenly allow for room to modify the way you express yourself.

The book is designed as an exploration in image and text. Through this journey Alexander van der Heide and Sander Coers come to the conclusion that if masculinity is anything at all, it is fluid. and ultimately they cannot avoid to reveal their own masculinity.
