10 KWA Symposium redefines image of old age and ageing Unterhaching/Berlin, June 10, 2011. What kind of image we have of older people? How do we imagine our own age? To what extent we expect that social and political responsibility for a successful aging? Questions that to make everyone pay. Questions that symposium were yesterday in the center of the 10 KWA and pen in the Park of Hohenzollern in Berlin were discussed by politics, economics, architecture, art and culture in the KWA. In addition to the lectures to the necessary residential and architectural concepts for a life in the age, pictures of old played this also true to the theme of the event”the personal views of the participants on the ageing is essential. The Director Jan Tenhaven showed senior athletes as cinema heroes and the photographer Werner Kruper presented the many facets of the age in his exhibition, for which he has photographed senior residents from all over Germany in everyday situations. It is not something Coen Brothers would like to discuss. If you would have asked me as a child. to paint a picture of my grandma I would have drawn at that time probably an old gray-haired woman with glasses on his nose, sitting in their armchairs with needle and wool on the lap. The pictures of the children of today look”probably different, said Astrid Franz, Director of the KWA pen hohenzollernpark, for their welcome.

The public image of the age has changed radically. The increased life expectancy opens up completely new possibilities and perspectives. In a society of long life it is important to seek appropriate, diverse and conduct effective age images”, said Dr. Stefan Arend, Director of KWA Board of housing for the elderly, on the occasion of the Symposium, to which he had invited well-known experts to Berlin. Age pictures are varied, they are consequential and therefore worth confronting them.” Guest of honour at the 10th KWA Symposium Josef was hedges, State Secretary in the Federal Ministry for families, senior citizens, women and youth, who declared in his speech: The question of how to live and how we live in the age?’ we can answer only if we make us realize what image we have by the age and aging.
