This looks like an interesting talk at the ICA soon (even going to be a live barber demonstration).
“Moustaches, beards, sideburns, goatees – half the population has facial hair to trim, style or just shave off. The other half is mostly ignorant of all the historical, social and cultural intricacies related to the ownership of facial hair or simply witnesses the trends and variations in the male grooming habits.”
Speakers include Billy Childish, pictured. It’s on Tuesday 29 January 2008, 7:00 pm.
