Simon Critchley and Brian Eno: BaldThursday 6 May 2021, 7 p.m. · 72 minutes
There’s more to being bald than having no hair. Philosopher Simon Critchley and musician Brian Eno will be discussing the various dimensions of hairlessness in connection with Simon’s new book Bald. In typical Critchley mode though, this collection of essays spills far beyond the question of hair, or the lack of it, to take in Aristophanes, Hamlet, the mysteries of Eleusis and the joys and pains of being a Liverpool fan. As well as being one of the most influential living musicians, Eno has written several books, including the recently republished A Year With Swollen Appendices (Faber).
