The Haircut Before the Party (THBTP)


The Haircut Before the Party (THBTP) are a radical hairdresser collective are taking up a “line of flight” across Europe through political and economical crisis, to discover the meanings of revolution today.

Throughout 2012 they will be setting up temporary salon structures that act as meeting places, sites of exchange and social environments in which people are invited to receive haircuts for free and discuss political issues in a space that encourages immediate solidarities and trust.

This is one of a series of events curated by Charlie Woolley and Richard Johns which will take place within Woolley’s installation Social Space. The work is part of ASSEMBLY, a Jerwood Visual Arts Encounters exhibition showing at Jerwood Space until 24 June 20120.

On the 20 May there will be free haircuts, a series of readings and a display of selected texts from The Haircut Before The Party’s library.
