Razor blade with box

In one of the rooms of the exhibition of the area "Dryland and mountain", we can appreciate a black and white photograph printed on a panel illuminated to the rhythm of a chotis that sounds in the background. In the photograph, some men
stand looking at pairs of men and women who dance in what looks like a typical village verbena. Those men who look passively at those active couples are the single people of the town, those who have not been married on time and patiently waiting for some girl to ask them to dance. Are men in their thirties, who have passed marriageable age: the "unmarriageable" of the village. Behind the photograph can be seen, when the panel is illuminated, some objects that were part of the imaginary of that society in which singles they went to dances not to dance: a razor, to go clean shaven and with their faces washed, a beret, essential masculine accessory, and a flask in the pocket to smoke cigarettes while watching couples dance. The music, the image and the objects are also accompanied by a fragment of Pierre Bourdieu's text The bachelor’s ball, in which the sociologist analyzes, decades before the existence of the Studies of Gender and starting from the celibacy of the firstborn, the institution of marriage as one more question of “relationships between the sexes”.
