    SENIORTOUR
    "GREY IS THE NEW PINK - Moments of Ageing"
    Seniortour for our older visitors
    With Lea Sante
    SENIORTOUR






    “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.

    With Berit Mohr
    EXHIBITION TOUR

    “COLLECTED. BOUGHT. LOOTED? Case Studies from a Colonial and National Socialist Context”


    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?


    These are just some of the questions arising from a critical review of the Weltkulturen Museum’s collection.

    Are the course of life and its development processes only a biological phenomenon? Or are the processes of maturing, ageing and dying also controlled by social and cultural concepts?

    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.

    LECTURE
    “The ethics of collecting”
    With Eva Ch. Raabe (Acting Director)
    4pm

    According to the International Council of Museums, collecting is one of a museum’s core tasks. As an institution conserving historical and authentic cultural objects, a museum provides public access to tangible and intangible heritage. Yet collecting covers a very diverse range of activities. Especially in an ethnological museum, the scientific and ethical principles underpinning these activities need to be constantly reviewed and discussed. This lecture takes a number of examples to illustrate collecting practices from colonial contexts to the acquisition of objects during today’s anthropological field research.

    “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?


    Every last Sunday, at  11am, we offer a Matinee Tour, which addresses  parents or grandparents and their children or grandchildren. While the older visitors are guided through our exhibition GREY IS THE NEW PINK, the younger visitors can enjoy fairytales from all over the world. Older readers will read to our younger 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?

    “Between the Years – transitional symbols"

    What does it mean to enter new phases of life, and how do we celebrate these transitions? Are there any particular objects which accompany us when making the transition into a new phase? Starting off with selected objects from Samoa and Papua New Guinea, which we discover in the exhibition GREY IS THE NEW PINK, we find out about our personal symbols of transition and print them on t-shirts or bags.

    For families and children aged six and above. €9 (including materials). No registration required
