What happens when there are no more eggs and the head is bald?

Men lose their hair, women feel like pressure cookers. ”What does age do with us? And what do we do about age?”
The new exhibition ”No more eggs & Bald heads” at Regionmuseet makes us think about growing older.

The quote, ”I feel like a pressure cooker'” comes from a woman. And ”I'm wiser – not so easily fooled”, from another. And there are also black-and-white photos of older men and women.

It was when Annica Carlsson Bergdahl had hot sweats during the night that she started to think about the menopause.

– It's something we don't talk much about, being in the middle of your life, the changes that that brings, in the body, in feelings, in life, says Annica Carlsson Bergdahl.

”The body gets weaker, wrinkles appear, you lose your hair... what thoughts do men have about that?”
Annica Carlsson Bergdahl

She is a social worker and journalist, she wanted to know more. She interviewed 17 women between 48 and 73 about their age.

She started thinking about how men age as well. How do they regard aging and how do they tackle it?

– The body gets weaker, wrinkles appear, you lose your hair... what thoughts do men have about that? I started to interview men.

– One said it was something he had never talked about, says Annica Carlsson Bergdahl.

Now she has compiled an exhibition along with photographs by Elisabeth Ohlson. It has toured the country for a few years, and now it has come to Skåne.

In one of the rooms in the exhibition there is a picture. Visitors can set up little notes with their answers to the question what makes them happy,

– It's important that we talk more about growing old, our feelings and what happens, says Annica Carlsson Bergdahl.

The exhibition will go on until 27th February 2022.
