“#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.
