Why an exhibition about aging?

Aging is one of the most important social issues on today’s social agenda, especially in the light of the dramatic demographic changes that are taking place in the Western world. In 2030, one third of the world's population will be over the age of 65 and a great number of those people can anticipate to reach a very advanced age. Paradoxically, aging is often feared as a topic of discussion. Most representations of old age are highly distorted and many of us have a negative understanding and feeling about it.

Indeed, getting old is a crucial and uncomfortable issue that needs to be faced! We believe that exhibitions can be a source of influence and change. Dialogue with Time has the potential, on one hand, to act as an important basis for raising awareness of the basic human conditions that elderly people deserve, and on the other hand, to reduce the fear of getting old amongst the younger generation.
