The Exhibition

The exhibition ‚Ich wohne, bis ich 100 bin. Red Vienna, Grey Society‘ engages playfully with the findings of a two-year research project by the ETH Wohnforum Zurich on housing for the elderly. The key aim of the exhibition is to inform about alternative forms of housing for the elderly that challenge conventional ideas or clichés – old people are increasingly prepared to move home again and to try out something new. The fixed image of the inflexible generation 50+ no longer exists. The aim of the exhibition is to inspire people from all walks of life to think about alternative ways of living in their old age. The exhibition supplement ‚Red Vienna, Grey Society‘ builds on the exhibition by the ETH Zurich, and shows the urban, social and historical context involved using examples from Vienna. A wide range of different lifestyles and forms of housing are presented on the basis of 10 selected Viennese examples.
