Container Talks

Finding Hope In New Role Models

A new generation of role models has grown up in an era of great societal changes and they are more colorful, more open-minded and – in a sense – more free than anyone who came before them. With our brand new editorial series, Container Talks, Container Love is now set to make their voices heard.

Visible Love | Rob Tennent

Not Waiting For A Miracle

One of Australia’s hottest queer exports and a key artist to our Visible Love exhibition series, Rob Tennent is a photographer with an unique view on the world. We sat down with Rob to talk about how his dad came around to accept him for who he is, why he thinks that cisgay men have had their time and why it’s their turn now to use their hard-earned privileges to put the focus on trans and non-binary people.

Lovesick | Maximilian Mouson

Sickly Seeking

In being lovesick lies the feeling of longing. Many believe for the condition to occur only after the end of a significant relationship or while being unhappily in love. Some may think of it as something to be overcome, to be a temporary effect of a road left abandoned. The longing that lies in lovesickness, however, can be present even during a time in which we lie close to someone in bed on a hazy summer night.

It looks like INVITING is the keyword of our little introduction this time.

In his ongoing long-term project BOY COMFORT ZOOM, observing and exploring modern masculinity, Yan Yufeng portraits boys and men from all over the world in places familiar to them – the models themselves pick the location for the shoot.
