Back to the agenda

Until the 14th of November 2021, you can watch the series ‘Crying Boys’ by photographer Noah Valentyn at Muiderslot caste. One of the most deeply held ideas about masculinity is that men don’t cry. This was not the case in the Middle Ages: in that period of time, it was quite normal for men to shed their tears in public. Wandering through the rooms of the medieval castle, you will come across the portraits of Valentyn. Modern young men with different backgrounds who show the authenticity of a person with their tears.
