How old are you?

A Project for an Aging World

Join our exploration of age and aging!
In the coming months, German and Japanese artists, scientists, and practitioners will get together to take a look at virtually everybody’s future. From numerous perspectives and in diverse, engaging ways. PLUS creates an experimental forum, inviting you to take part in an inquiry into the nature, the individual and socio-cultural circumstances, and the possible futures of age(ing). What do these look like? And are we – both as a society and as individuals – ready for them? Or do we have to rethink age(ing)? Find out more

PLUS Conversations

Let's speak loud and share more!

In short film interviews, our artists, scientists, partners and selected participants take a look at themselves and shed a different light on age(ing).

PLUS is back in Germany! Two very eventful weeks lie behind us, where we have engaged in an intensive exchange with the people of Ibaraki City in many different ways. Shortly, you will find out what we experienced during our field research, workshops, exhibitions, performances and the symposium from July 25 to August 7 here on our website. As a little appetizer: the answers of Japanese children, who told us in the context of our kids' survey how they imagine life in old age.
