‘A good face is a letter of recommendation,’ novelist Henry Fielding wrote, before going on to curse the false recommendations of Nature. The Beautiful and the Damned will ask to what extent ‘erotic capital’ – beauty, good dress sense, physical fitness and sex appeal – still opens doors to people that are locked to others. Should the beautiful be damned? The panel includes artist, performer, director and writer Scottee (who stars in the Online Project Follow) and Catherine Hakim, academic and author of Honey Money: The Power of Erotic Capital. Part of AND Festival 2012.
