Reimagine Old Age

The inequalities of ageing are being explored in a new installation at the Barbican.

The installation, titled Unclaimed, is set up to appear like a lost property office by using artifacts from every day life to tell the stories of men and women aged over 70. 

Unclaimed includes shocking stats like: On average you will live 19 years longer if you live in a wealthy area compared to a deprived area.

The installation is on until May at the Barbican.
