Together with the artists of the ELLE Kollektiv at the Münchner Kammerspiele, the students of the FOS für Gestaltung have been exploring the production “Liebe (Amour)” – a drama based on the film by Michael Haneke – and asking themselves:

Where does the good life begin in old age and where does it end? What new needs arise in the last third of life and what dreams are perhaps still open? Are they still relevant? How do I imagine my so-called old age? And what does my life plan in old age say in retrospect about the life I am leading right now?

In November 2023, the students undertook a research trip to the German retirement paradise of Dénia in Spain. At the Euroclub, they got to know senior citizens and conducted interviews with them about their current situation and life in old age. “Forever Old” is a testimony to this joint reflection on the future of ageing and the attempt to find suitable words and images for the incomprehensibly distant future that we all face at some point.

A cooperation with the Städtische Fachoberschule für Gestaltung München and the ELLE Kollektiv.
The cooperation is funded by the Department of Education and Sport (Vocational Schools Division), co-financed by the European Union.
