Interested in hairs as very functional as well as strange material, Erik Steinbrecher presents with (Frisuerchen) 12 plates with photographic compositions of hairstyles – as worn by mannequins in cheap shop windows, sculptures made by the artist or as montages with tufts lying on fashion features from magazines. The plates show basically hairs as an archaic material on the human body. But expose in the end a subversive eye on the world by offering associations of brutalization. The different “haircuts” collected by the artist have an amusing impact on the observer – not without concealing the beauty and grace of this peculiar material “hairs”. Just as the german title of the book (Frisuerchen) ironically alludes to, by meaning the diminutive of hairstyle. The book is published on the occasion of the exhibition ANIMISMUS at Haus der Kulturen der Welt Berlin, that takes place in March 2012. Item #13512
