Dialogue with Time
"Dialogue with Time is an interactive exhibition, the first of its kind in the world that deals with aging from an original perspective. The groundbreaking exhibition allows visitors a glimpse into the world of the elderly.
Through experiential play, using latest technology, a creative intergenerational dialogue is produced, dispelling stereotypes and clichés of old age. The guides of this exhibition are aged 70 and above. They are the mediators and experts in all facets of aging and act as role models."
"For over ten years Orna Cohen and Andreas Heinecke have been working on ways to transfer the experience gained from the exhibitions Dialogue in the Dark and Dialogue in Silence to an exhibition about the situation of old people. Both were disturbed by the undifferentiated discussion about aging, the tendency of many people to avoid wresting a positive side from their own aging process and the notion that people are subject to discrimination and exclusion after they have reached a certain age. Orna and Andreas can’t understand why a unique achievement in the history of mankind – more and more people reach old age in good condition – causes above all fears on various levels. Both gladly accepted an invitation from the Israeli Children's Museum in Holon to realize the exhibition in cooperation with a circle of experts. The success in Israel motivated Orna and Andreas to adapt Dialogue with Time to the demographic circumstances in Germany and to build a network of supporters in order to make an important contribution to the overall discussion in an aging society. With the financial support of the Robert Bosch Stiftung and the Generali Zukunftsfonds, the content-critical reflection of the Contents by the BAGSO and the openness of the Museum für Kommunikation in Frankfurt and Berlin to show the exhibition in Germany, the foundation was laid."
