This publication focuses on the notion of Masquerade. For the past two years, If I Can’t Dance, I Don’t Want To Be Part Of Your Revolution has been exploring the cultural, social and political meanings of this concept from a critical and interdisciplinary perspective together with more than fifty artists, curators, writers and theoreticians. '(Mis)Reading Masquerades' comprises a selection of theoretical texts drawn from different fields of knowledge that address questions such as transgression, gender identity and subversion, gesture, the carnivalesque, the construction of subjectivity, authorship, mimesis, and alterity.
