INTERVENTION AT ROSKILDE MUSIC FESTIVAL, 2013

On the Roskilde Music Festival outside Copenhagen a barbershop opened with the invitation: Barbershop - Haircuts with or without citizenship. People seeking asylum in Denmark are not allowed to work or study, with one exception - hairdressing school. We wish to point out the absurdity of this legislation. Drop by the barbershop and get a free haircut from professionals who are not allowed to have a profession. Having your hair cut is a situation of intimacy and trust, a space for interaction and understanding - the kind of space we aim to create with visAvis. In 2009 I was the co-creator of visAvis - a magazine on asylum and migration, the movement of people across borders and the challenges connected to this.
