JUST SEEN CAME ACROSS THIS VIDEO WHICH BACKS UP ‘THE PRESENTATION OF SELF’

Uncategorized

The opening line says, “No matter where you are, you always “put a mask”, to get where you want and to be part of something!”

It seems this video is in agreement with Goffman and how he elaborates on how the “front” individuals put on. The clip uses his theory but present it with masks, rather than obvious behaviour/speech/thoughts through subtitles. They’re using the masks as props and representing that individuals aren’t always themselves, and metaphorically wear masks whilst around others. This is something we see everyday. Isn’t it?

The notion of authenticity-reality, truth-in identity is very complex.
