How can we meet the growing challenges that the issue of dementia constitutes for our society? How can we help people with dementia participate in society as long as possible?
The goal of the research project Dementia. Arts. Society. (D.A.S.) is to employ artistic and design-based methods in order to raise awareness of people suffering from dementia as well as to offer them a new perspective on their own abilities and social life. The research team will present their preliminary findings in the context of this exhibition.
Ruth Mateus-Berr, Cornelia Bast, Antonia Eggeling, Elisabeth Haid, Pia Scharler, Christina Carli and Tatia Skhirtladze give insights into three years of research work and show results and findings developed during the project.
