C/O Berlin Loves Hair and Shows it with Photography Exhibition

Fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld, presents his own personal interpretation of ‘German hair’ in the person of his toy boy Baptiste Giabiconi.

BERLIN.- At C/O Berlin, International Forum For
Visual Dialogues, Schwarzkopf presents photographs by Karl Lagerfeld, Gabo, and
Russell James and illustrations by Olaf Hajek from December 12, 2009, to January
17, 2010.
The exhibition accompanying the book We Love Hair will be
shown at the Postfuhramt at Oranienburger Straße 35/36. A symbol of beauty,
temptation, and seduction; an expression of power and strength, intimidation and
protest—hair is a universal medium of self-expression. Always making a
statement, hair can signal group membership while simultaneously demonstrating
otherness. With its wide variety of shapes, colors, and textures, hair serves as
a means of self-definition and self-dramatization.
