    More than 80% of crime in the UK is caused by men. It’s a problem that isn’t discussed in gender terms, but it should be. Artist Grayson Perry explores two sides of the story – meeting the police and the local criminals they pursue. Their motivations are different, but are the preoccupations of these men more similar than you might expect? And what light do they shine on modern masculinity?
