Gallery Mönch is looking forward to welcoming you to lecture performances with barbara caveng and to an aperitif on the coming Saturdays, September 5, 12 and 19, starting at 4 pm.


Dear ladies and gentlemen, dear friends of the gallery,
what you always wanted to know about hair, but never dared to think about it – barbara caveng tells and performs about her artistic insights using hair as material, about her experiences with more than 120 hairdressers* and their customers, why Gottfried Benn inspired her to create the social sculpture HA[A]RVEST and the LIBRARY OF HAIR and how she transforms all this into her sensual objects and sculptures.

September 5
‘Fassonschnitt ohne Treppen / short back and sides’ or ‘On the height of time’: a much-dressed hairdresser who has become independent. (Gottfried Benn).

September 12
‘Consulation from the library of hair”
