    SENIORTOUR
    “GREY IS THE NEW PINK - Moments of Ageing”
    Seniortour for our older visitors
    With Meike Weber
    SENIOR TOUR









    “GREY IS THE NEW PINK - Moments of Age(ing)”


    Who is old – where and when? Can we meet the ‘challenge of ageing’ optimistically? And what potential lies slumbering in the process of aging?


    On every first Wednesday in a month, at 11am, there will be an exhibition tour  for older citizens, who require longer breaks during the tour. At certain stations in the exhibition GREY IS THE NEW PINK there will be possibilities to take a break or sit down for a while. The guides will adapt to the pace of the visitors.


    Projections for global demographic trends are forecasting an increase in the world’s older population. The process of growing older is not just important for each individual, but has implications for the social and cultural spheres. Yet each generation ages differently. And when can we actually talk of someone as ‘old’ at all? Even if the visible biological aging processes are the same the world over, each culture has its differences in defining ‘age’. There is no universally valid definition of when ‘old age’ starts. So who is old – where and when?


    GREY IS THE NEW PINK presents diverse ideas and models of ‘age(ing)’ from the perspective of cultural studies and the visual arts, as well as personal and individual experience. Like fragments in a lifetime’s memories, the exhibition combines into an anthology of aging the individual ways of dealing with such topics as lifestyle, love and sexuality, transmission of knowledge, longevity, illness, health, and death.


    In the exhibition ‘age(ing)’ is explored internationally in photographs, videos, literature, drawings, as well as large-scale and multimedia installations and performances both in the work of scientists, artists and poets, as well as younger and older people from the general population. Numerous exhibits from the from the Weltkulturen Museum’s Africa, Americas, South East Asia, Oceania, Visual Anthropology collections  and the library broaden the view of the subject.

    SPECIAL TOUR
    “Transitions and the Transmission of Knowledge. Moments of Ageing in Oceania”
    With Matthias Claudius Hofmann

    SPECIAL TOUR

    “Transitions and the Transmission of Knowledge. Moments of Ageing in Oceania”


    What does age and ageing mean in Oceania? And what does it have to do with tattooing? Why do younger and older brothers in the Sepik region in New Guinea exchange fish for sago flour? And how are the dead commemorated there?


    The tour introduces perspectives on the social construction of ageing and being old in Oceania, as well as the implied social roles. Focusing on the relationship between the older and younger generation, the topics explored include rites of passage and initiation into new social age classes as well as the transmission of traditional knowledge from one generation to the next.


    Taking examples from the Oceania collection, Matthias Claudius Hofmann, curator for Oceania at the Weltkulturen Museum, leads a tour in our current exhibition GREY IS THE NEW PINK.

    Artists in Conversation with a tour of the exhibition
    With Kathrin Sachse (photographer, Dreieich)
    and Karsten Thormaehlen(photographer, Frankfurt)


    The exhibition includes portraits of centenarians – but what tips do they have for living to a ripe old age? Does eating minestrone help you live longer? What breaks in our biographies promote artistic creativity? And can decay have its own beauty?


    Helena Kieß (curatorial assistant) and Leonie Neumann (research scholar) tour the exhibition and talk to these two photographers about centenarians, the ravages of time, and the process of artistic creativity.


    Karsten Thormaehlen (*1965) is a German photographer and artist, presently living and working in Wiesbaden and Frankfurt am Main. After studying Communication Design at the University of Applied Sciences Wiesbaden. His work has been honoured with a range of prizes, including Gold at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity 2015, an Honourable Mention at the Px3 Prix de la Photographie, one of Europe’s leading photography competitions, and a nomination for the Robert Bosch Foundation’s German Senior Citizens’ Award. In addition Thormaehlen has dedicated a big part of his work to the topic age(ing) and is engaged in a campaign against age discrimination by the World Health Organisation (WHO), in a sport campaign for motivation of elderly people by the DOSB (German Olympic Sports Confederation) and enhanced demographic, Alzheimer’s and geriatric congresses with art instellations and lectures.


    Kathrin Sachse (*1972) is Media Designer and freelance phtographer, currently living and working in Dreieich. With her agency for Media Design "KS kreativ und sozial" she is creating advertising concepts for social institutions and companies. Since 2015 she is publishing regularly photographic art calenders on the book market and since 2016 her photo art can be seen in solo and group exhibtions. Shape and colour stand in the middle of her photographic compositions, which can be placed between photgraphy and painting. Sachse succeeds to convey different  perspectives of life. With her work "Narbenseelenland", which has the aesthetic of decay in an artistic setting, she participated in the "Call for Content" for the exhibtion GREY IS THE NEW PINK.

    A film evening with Kirstin Schmitt (director, Gelnhausen/Berlin) and Maren Schmitt (producer, Gelnhausen/Berlin)
    (91 minutes, long-term documentary, original Hesse dialect with English subtitles)


    Adelheid (79) always goes along with things and never makes a fuss. But Kornelius’s diagnosis of cancer is a shock to the accepted structure of their relationship. Adelheid senses she may well survive her beloved and dominant husband, and prepares herself for life as a widow. ADELHEID, KORNELIUS & DIE TÖDE is a lyrical and humorous documentary movie about relationships, ageing and death – above all, though, this is a declaration of a love of life! The protagonists in the film meet all life’s adversities with an unfiltered frankness of thought and loquacious humour.


    Introduced by the director and producer, also present at the post-screening discussion.

We work individually, in pairs and as a group.


    Petra Lehr works as a dancer, choreographer and dance instructor and is the founder of the co.lab.tanztheater (dance theater) in Frankfurt.

    Do you know what a time capsule is? A time capsule can take things and impressions from today into the distant future. Inspired by the GREY IS THE NEW PINK exhibition, you create your own time capsules with sketches, collages and photos. What are your hopes and predictions for your future, and what might your lives look like when you are old?


    At the end of the workshop, we seal your time capsules for the next fifty years until your 60th birthday. What do you think? Will you be surprised? Will your predictions come true? You’ll only know when you break the seal in the future! Please bring with you photos and little things you’d like to put in your time capsule.

    GREY IS THE NEW PINK reflects a new feeling for life which includes self-confident physical expression, especially as we age. Choreographer Petra Lehr and the Ü60 dance club from the Tanzplattform Rhein-Main take you on an unusual dance tour through the exhibition. Diverse facets of ageing, from love and wisdom to illness and death, are translated into performative choreographies accompanied by music. Inspired by the topics in the exhibition and the dancers’ own personal experiences, the feelings and hopes associated with maturing and ageing are performed and represented in movement.






    Petra Lehr works as a dancer, choreographer and dance instructor and is the founder of the co.lab.tanztheater (dance theater) in Frankfurt. She went to the Leonard Pitt School of Mime and Mask Theater (San Francisco), to the Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance and the Alvin Ailey American Dance Center (New York).


    Christiane Lüder studied at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Hannover and, among other activities, teaches at the Akademie für Tonkunst in Darmstadt. Some examples of her projects are her intense work with Tango Nuevo, performances and premieres of contemporary composers.

    CONSERVATOR'S GUIDED TOUR
    “Preserving the old: Anti-ageing in the museum”
    With Kristina Werner
    CONSERVATOR'S GUIDED TOUR



    “Preserving the old: Anti-ageing in the museum”


    How is a 100-year-old skull restored? How do you transport a four-metre-long Baining mask into the exhibition? And how do you preserve the bright hues of colourful feathers?


    Kristina Werner answers these and other questions in a fascinating insight into the work of conservators and methods to slow the process of things ageing.


    Werner holds an M.A. in the restoration and conservation of art and cultural artefacts from the University of Cologne, and has specialised in objects made of wood and modern materials.

    What does it actually mean to grow up in a ‘digital world’? How is this digital world said to be different from the one in which our grandparents were children?


    In the GREY IS THE NEW PINK exhibition, we try to find answers to these questions. Remember to ask your (grand)parents for traditional recipes to bring with you!

    EXHIBITION TOUR
    “GREY IS THE NEW PINK – Moments of Ageing”
    With Victoria Stein
    EXHIBITION TOUR

    Who is old – where and when? Can we meet the ‘challenge of ageing’ optimistically? And what potential lies slumbering in the process of aging?


    Projections for global demographic trends are forecasting an increase in the world’s older population. The process of growing older is not just important for each individual, but has implications for the social and cultural spheres. Yet each generation ages differently. And when can we actually talk of someone as ‘old’ at all? Even if the visible biological aging processes are the same the world over, each culture has its differences in defining ‘age’. There is no universally valid definition of when ‘old age’ starts. So who is old – where and when?


    GREY IS THE NEW PINK presents diverse ideas and models of ‘age(ing)’ from the perspective of cultural studies and the visual arts, as well as personal and individual experience. Like fragments in a lifetime’s memories, the exhibition combines into an anthology of aging the individual ways of dealing with such topics as lifestyle, love and sexuality, transmission of knowledge, longevity, illness, health, and death.


    In the exhibition ‘age(ing)’ is explored internationally in photographs, videos, literature, drawings, as well as large-scale and multimedia installations and performances both in the work of scientists, artists and poets, as well as younger and older people from the general population. Numerous exhibits from the from the Weltkulturen Museum’s Africa, Americas, South East Asia, Oceania, Visual Anthropology collections  and the library broaden the view of the subject.
