From your own experiences, tell us about a significant moment or event in your personal or professional life that shaped your perspective around aging.
Together with my artist partner Kattrin Deufert we did some voluntary work in an old peoples home. We sat, introduced a theme and let people talk about it, amongst each other and with us. One day we introduced the theme sexuality, as we were working on a project and we had an incredible afternoon of stories and observations. And it became clear that inter generative care, somatic practice and sexuality needs a place and voice.
