Aisha Franz: Hair


Exhibition and Booklet
Opening: Thu, 13.07., 18.30h

Hair is everything. So when a mother discovers lice on her child requiring them to go to the institute for lice control, the big disaster begins. “Hair” is about having hair and losing hair and the associated expectations and feelings of shame – but above all, about the chance to face them.
Aisha Franz lives and works as a comic artist and illustrator in Berlin.
