Unpub­lished slide lecture (English)

Audi­ences often assume that I wear a wig in Kölnisch Wasser, the video/​performance, in order to emulate a pros­ti­tute. Apart from the obvious ideal that straight blonde hair suggests, it may not be a well-known fact that it is forbidden for ultra orthodox Jewish women, to show their hair. Many Jewish women have complied with this reli­gious prohi­bi­tion, by wearing wigs rather than head­scarves.”
