Patrick Deboosere [BE]
Due to the cancellation of Eszter Salamon's show MONUMENT 0.1, this introductory talk won't take place.
A spectre is once again haunting Europe: the spectre of ageing. Everyday we hear warnings about an ageing population. Patrick Deboosere is a demographer and leads the Interface Demography research group at VUB. In his book Lang Leve de Vergrijzing (‘Long Live Ageing’) he challenges the doom-mongering on the subject. Together with Deboosere’s book, we will also be presenting AGE, from the anatomy of life to the architecture of living. AGE is a new VUB-Crosstalks publication.
