    EXHIBITION TOUR
    “GREY IS THE NEW PINK - Moments of Ageing”
    With Eva Neukirchner
    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.

    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.

    “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.

    With Helena Kiess
    SPECIAL TOUR





    “#seniors of instagram and other Moments of Ageing”
    With Helena Kiess (curatorial assistant)


    How is age discussed in digital media? Which possibilities does the digital world provide for older people?


    New social media platforms like Instagram, Facebook and Youtube develop new forms of communication and representation. In this way, not only news but also topics like beauty, lifestyle and love, as well as tips and tricks are exchanged. In the context of the exhibition GREY IS THE NEW PINK, the guided tour will show the influence of these media on the discourse on ageing and how the platforms are used to present one's own image of ageing.
    Becoming and Instagram star with more than 70 years? No problem! We will show how this is possible.

    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.
