C/O Berlin Loves Hair and Shows it with Photography and Drawing Exhibition
Gabo, Morning Stars.
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. Although hair is a recurring motif in the visual arts and an age-old theme in art history, relatively few photographic works have dealt with hair as a subject in its own right. The exhibition “We Love Hair” features international photographers Karl Lagerfeld, Russell James, and Gabo as well as illustrator Olaf Hajek, each presenting their own very personal perspective on hair.

With a cool, minimalist aesthetic, Karl Lagerfeld stages his own interpretation of the concept of “German Hair” in photographs of his muse, Baptiste Giabiconi, among others. The photo spread is a voyage through the decades of the past century with Lagerfeld at the helm, charting the changing trends in hair fashion.

Russell James gathered inspiraiton for his captivating series of photographs from nature, transforming it into a magical and sensual homage to femininity. James, an internationally renowned fashion photographer from Australia, interweaves the theme of hair with the elements of earth, air, fire, and water, allowing us to become one with the diverse colors and shapes of the natural world.

In “Morning Stars,” star photographer Gabo presents celebrities like Veronica Ferres, Eva Padberg, Natalia Wörner, Alexandra Maria Lara, and Till Brönner in a very private moment—first thing in the morning! Gabo, one of Germany’s best-known portrait photographers, lends a certain something to this unique moment, telling volumes in a single picture.

Berlin artist Olaf Hajek presents striking and colorful visualizations of the connection between hair trends and the major and minor revolutions of human history. From Marie Antoinette to the Fab Four and all the way to the Blonde Revolution, Hajek traces the courses of history and hair looks, showing in a humorous way how closely the two are intertwined.

On the occasion of its 111th anniversary, hair and cosmetic product producer Schwarzkopf published the book “We Love Hair.” The exhibition based on this publication contains lavish photo spreads and illustrations, stories, facts, and entertaining anecdotes on the subject of hair.
