    “GREY IS THE NEW PINK- Moments of Ageing”
    EXHIBITION TOUR




    GREY IS THE NEW PINK - Moments of Ageing


    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.

    WORKSHOP WITH EXHIBITION TOUR
    “Between the years- transitional symbols”
    WORKSHOP WITH EXHIBITION TOUR

    “Between the years- transitional symbols”






    From child to teenager, from teenager to adult… Everyone goes through the progression of childhood through to adulthood and then old age. But what does it mean to enter new phases of life, and how do we celebrate these transitions? Are there any particular objects or companions which accompany us when making the transition into a new phase and help us master everyday life? Starting off with selected objects from Samoa and Papua New Guinea, which we discover on our visit to the exhibition GREY IS THE NEW PINK, we find out about our personal symbols of transition and print them on t-shirts or bags.


    Further information about the exhibition here.



    For families and children aged six and above.

    Curator Julia Friedel guides through the exhbition and gives insights into the research process behind the exhbition.


    How did ancestor figures from Nias off the western coast of Sumatra enter the European art market in the early twentieth century? Why could the museum buy objects rather ‘cheaply’ in Paris and Amsterdam in the early 1940s? Is a weapon belt from South Africa war booty?

    TALK





    “The Höllerer Collection – On the provenance of a missionary collection from the colonial era”
    With Matthias Claudius Hofmann (curator Oceania)












    What if the documentation of a collection seems to be almost completely lost and the knowledge of the historical context is only preserved in fragments? How can we reconstruct this history? These and other questions are discussed by curator Matthias Claudius Hofmann on the example of a colonial collection from North-East New Guinea collected in 1904/05 by a technician of the Mission Neudettelsau, that was acquired by the museum in 1906.
