MOMA QUESTIONS FOR NEW AGING: MY COMMENTS

MOMA QUESTIONS FOR NEW AGING:  MY COMMENTS


Some of the questions we will strive to answer in our next salon: What is the meaning of the demographic transformation
the world is undergoing? What are its social, psychological, aesthetic, and ethical implications? How does this global trend
force us to negotiate novel conceptions of intergenerational obligations, expectations for a well-lived life? Do we need a
philosophy of aging? Are we correct to be worrying about the world’s population aging? What is the role of art in all of this?
 What will be the impact of a demographic tectonic shift for world politics? What is the longevity economy? How does the
beauty industry exploit ageist myths and stereotypes? Are there countries in which it is easier to get old? How does the
pressure to stay young forever play out in different global contexts? How and where will we live as we age? What an
all-age-friendly world would look like?
