Paul Beaudoin is a globally recognized interdisciplinary artist. Based in Tallinn, Estonia, Dr Beaudoin actively creates visual and sound art that echoes his relationship to his identity and the contemporary culture that surrounds him.
As an American boy growing up in the 1960s, Paul was constantly "educated" by films produced and distributed by the US Government. These videos instilled incredible fear, self-shame, while gearing most of the children towards hetero-normative lifestyles. Now these films have become accessible, he has returned to them - but for a very different purpose. In recent work, Paul has explored how masculinity, and toxic masculinity in particular, was propagated in the most simplistic terms and how one's sexuality was to be suppressed.
