Inspiring hair work on DIS Magazine by Chelsey Pickthorn
Wish I could go to this today. Going to try to get some footage/video to show the students:
“GOING OVER” is an illustrated meditation on the global marketing of masculinity through hair, hair products and signature hairstyles, focusing on the microcosm of Kuwait and the ‘exiting of trends’ by Kuwati youth, in contrast with the hair conservatism of an older generation.In this presentation, Al Qadiri and Al Gharaballi explore historic comparisons, hair regulation reports from Iran and a case study conducted in Kuwait; the discussion will expose the delicate relationship between hair and culture and, more specifically, between barber and client. Commissioned by DIS magazine and Bidoun Projects.
*This will be recorded and played on DIS Magazine’s site. Can’t wait to share it.
