Dany Nobus: Arresting Masculinity: Anger, Hybridity and the Persistence of Patriarchy in the 21st Century



Within the context of Cooper Gallery’s current exhibition The Pleasure of Expense by Jasmina Cibic, we are delighted to host a talk by Professor Dany Nobus on “Arresting Masculinity: Anger, Hybridity and the Persistence of Patriarchy in the 21st Century”.

The event will take place on the Wednesday 11 of December, at Cooper Gallery, from 5:30 to 7pm. 

In this talk professor Nobus will analyse the almost omnipresent talk about “toxic masculinity” which is often credited as being the cause of all contemporary ‘evils’ in a social world that is inhabited by men and women. Nobus will also explore that branding particularly dominant versions of masculinity as “toxic” is less an answer to a question, than itself an attempt to escape the real problems at hand: namely why does patriarchy continue to exist and how it impacts the world.

Professor Dany Nobus is a Clinical Psychologist, Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist and Chair of the Freud Museum London. Main research interests include the history, theory and practice of psychoanalysis, the history of psychiatry, and the intersections between psychoanalysis, philosophy and Tthe arts. In 2017, Nobus was awarded the Sarton medal of the University of Ghent for his outstanding contributions to the history of psychoanalysis.

This event is free and unticketed and is part of the Event Series for The Pleasure of Expense
