the first European festival on creativity

2014 Program

Event #33

Chiara Saraceno

Inheritance, Tradition, Generational Changes

The changes that have taken place in roles and relationships between genders and between generations within the family have created new tensions. Can we relate these transformations to the tension between inheritance (tradition) and change, between respect for experience and the impossibility of changing, between the need to come forward (young people) and the temptation to wipe everything out? From this point of view, the conflict underway between those who don’t want to change anything, and those who instead do choose change regardless of content seems to be an exemplary case of how the “elderly/youth” dichotomy (where have middle-aged adults disappeared to?) is the simplified narrative key to issues that are much more complex.
