New Crosstalks book: AGE - From the anatomy of life to the architecture of living

AGE - From the anatomy of life to the architecture of living is the 6th Crosstalks book and it covers a bold selection of research, reflections, projects and activism exploring ageism and its opposite. Philosophy and art are included for their capacity to provide culturally driven contexts in which to think freely and activate slumbering senses and sensibilities.

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. Discrimination against age is deeply rooted and an immense and often not recognized threshold for many human oriented initiatives for a better world for everybody.

It is is a counter narrative, celebrating life, solidarity and the empowerment of all people with regard to their own health, whatever one's age.

Age is the first book bringing together an interdisciplinary and intergenerational mix of studies, research, reflections, projects and activism against ageism and exploring the
opposite.
