Dans le centre pour seniors Schwesternpark Feierabendhäuser, la série à succès du calendrier “Beauté dans le grand âge” a été poursuivie. Pour 2015 des tableaux de Vieux Maîtres ont été repris comme photos ayant les résidents comme modèles. Les tableaux sont de maîtres allant du 15ième au début du 20ième siècle, comme Lucas Cranach le Vieux, Rubens ou Rembrandt van Rijn. Il y a des résultats intéressants d’interprétations de tableaux pas toujours très connus. Bien que les arrangements pour la préparation ont été très élaborés, la prise des photos était un événement inoubliable pour tous les participants. Le résultat est un calendrier très spécial qui est différent de tous les précédents.

Dans le contexte du thème annuel “Rêvons toujours à 70 ans!” à l’université d’Art et Design de “Burg Giebichenstein” à Halle, une collection de mode pour la génération de 70 ans et + a été créée. “Par la mode nous voulons exprimer nos rêves. Des seniors en ont tout comme les jeunes”. (Prof. Thomas Greis). Les étudiants ont trouvé leurs modèles en faisant des randonnées, en allant aux leçons de natation pour seniors, dans les centres pour seniors etc. Pendant une période de plusieurs mois beaucoup de modèles ont été conçus, allant du style adapté au quotidien aux caprices artistiques. Par la mode, la coopération entre les jeunes et les seniors a mené à de nouvelles expériences étonnantes et agréables et des bons contacts, parfois de vraies amitiés.  

From the 8th to the 11th of November 2012 an exchange meeting of Mix@ages took place in Vienna. 61 young and old pariticipants hit the road with their cameras, smartphones etc to enter Vienna artistically. Their photo subjects: What is in your eyes typically young, what is typically old and what is cross-generational? The results were numerous wonderful, humorous and artistic photos covering the theme age, youth and generations. After the photoshooting all photos had been uploaded to an interactive map to be still available far after the meeting.
