Solo Exhibition

»Im [Un]Ruhestand«

Arne Wesenberg

The number of older working people in Germany is increasing rapidly. The labor force participation of 60- to 64-year-olds has almost tripled in the last ten years. At the same time, fewer and fewer people will be available to the labor market in the coming years. A retirement age of 69 is currently being discussed.

For more than seven years Lübeck-based photographer Arne Wesenberg has been portraying the reality of life of those who – voluntarily or out of economic necessity – have been working in their old age. Im [Un]Ruhestand provides in more than 50 portraits individual answers to questions about demographic aging, a functioning pension system and the importance of working in our society.

OPENING: Friday, June 14, 2019, 7 pm
INTRODUCTION: Katharina Mouratidi, Artistic Director f³ – freiraum für fotografie, in conversation with the photographer Arne Wesenberg.
