Extravagant Bodies: Extravagant Age

Extravagant Bodies: Extravagant Age identifies the issue of old age as that which makes visible the premises on which contemporary society is founded, at the same time opening up the possibility of their critique. To a society of hyperproduction obsessed with competition and profit, age opposes slowness, minimal production and consumption, the possibility of analysis and reflection. It juxtaposes to the young, energetic and constantly beautified and rejuvenated body the body that is deviating ever more from the ideals of health and beauty but that can nevertheless still be a source of pleasure and satisfaction.
