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. 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. The exhibition presents more than 17 works by international artists combining photography, film or literature.
