“Message in the hair – African hairstyles
(for children age 4 to 12)
Every Sunday in July and August, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., curator Ivana Vojt / Dragan Mišković, will guide Museum visitors through the latest exhibition „When You‘ve Stopped Combing Me, I’ll Stop Hating You - Photo exhibition by Katarina Radović“. In the series of photographs “When You‘ve Stopped Combing Me, I’ll Stop Hating You“, the author shows women and girls in moments of perseverance and endurance during the painful and unpleasant processes of making a hairstyle, which would be a response to the ideals of beauty construed in their environment. The clients never abandon their intention to walk out of the salon looking prettier than when they came in, and they patiently endure the hours of sitting, pulling, even sewing and torching the locks of their hair. Young women, future brides, mothers with babies and older women are subject to this treatment, proving that beauty saves no one. By entering Radović’s photographs, transposed in an animated, intimate and compassionate way, the viewer steps into everyday life and women’s spaces, which are linked to the need to be beautified even in modest social conditions.
