Salon Souterrain 2022: Bodies in Transformation – 13. July 2022 @5pm, MuseumsQuartier – Libelle / Kat R

What is old? There is a new way of looking at the body, the old body, the aged body. Covid has brought it into the foreground, shows like Germany’s Next Topmodel into the spotlight. In her musical­-discursive for­mat Salon Souterrain, which rethinks the bourgeois idea of the salon in the context of current debates regarding transformation, Elisabeth Tambwe and her guests explore the “silver economy” and the new hype around grey hair on plasticized and profitable bodies. In doing so, they ask the actually important question: What does it mean to grow old?
