For the ‘Family’ exhibition, artist and designer Manon van Hoeckel collaborated with 18 local hairdressers. The barber chair is the perfect setting for a good conversation, from relationships to family histories. Hairdressers have an important social role in society, they offer a listening ear and provide space for conversation and meeting ‘the other’. Every Sunday from 12.00 to 16.00, one of the hairdressers cuts for free in the room and talks to his or her customer. In the various hairdressing salons in Schiedam, special hairdressing robes are used with a provocative question that stimulates the conversation.
