“Things can only be diverse and should be diverse,” wrote Donald Judd in 1964 about the art scene in New York, and hence rejected a one-dimensional ordering of art history in favor of an open encounter with works of art.


Moments of Aging

When and where is a person old? And can one face the “challenge of age” optimistically? Aging plays an important role for the individual as well as with respect to social and cultural processes. But, every generation ages differently and every culture also differs in how it defines old age. Scientists, artists, and lyricists as well as younger and older people deal with the topic of age and aging in photographs, art, and literature. GREY IS THE NEW PINK brings together the results and individual approaches to topics such as lifestyle, love and sexuality, illness, health, and death, and shows possibilities for how to deal with the phase of life called “old age” in future.
