Celebrating ! the release of the new Crosstalks book AGE at Passa Porta, Rue Antoine Dansaert Straat 46, 1000 Brussels.
From November on we start a series of release-events for the 6th Crosstalks boek: AGE, From the anatomy of life to the architecture of living.
AGE wants to contribute to the escape routes out of a society driven by competition and profit and divided by class, income, race, sex, education and age. AGE is a counter narrative, celebrating life, solidarity and the empowerment of all people with regard to their own health, whatever one's age. Ageism is to age what racism is to race. Both are socially constructed ideas that have changed over time and serve a social and economic purpose. They’re not about how we look, they’re about how people in power assign meaning to how we look. - Ashton Applewhite
The AGE celebration on November 29 takes place at Passa Porta and the evening consists of presentations by Marleen Wynants, Carla Molenberghs (Huis Perrekes), Seppe Baeyens (Tornar, Ultima Vez) and readings from literature by Claude Blondeel, Catherine Ongenae, Mia Vaerman, Dylan Belgrado and Goedele Nuytens. The program is in Dutch. More info and registration.
