Open discussions on Age as an Art are now a tradition. This time around we invited the following literary figures to a comfortable room in the Volkhonka Mansion: the poets Vera Pavlova and Akh Astakhova and Aleksandr Tsypkin, the author of the short story collection «Zhenshchiny Nepreklonnogo Vozrasta [Unaging Women]». The meeting was moderated by the journalist and director Fyokla Tolstaya. Old age has been «pushed back», and the panellists believe that post-retirement age is a great time of life: you are still active and healthy, but for you to realize yourself, certain conditions must be in place, yet in Russia, it is even difficult for a senior citizen to get a job, unfortunately. The guests also talked about their visions of their own old age. The issues discussed also included purely practical matters; how to dress appropriately for your age, whether it makes sense to live in an extended family with children and grandchildren if you can afford to get your own place; and deeply personal questions: whether you can divorce after the age of 70, what the right way is to go about writing your last will and testament. The discussion turned out to be honest and sincere, and the guests seemed to have already got used to the fact that you can talk about old age in public, that the word «old age» carries no shame and that you can treat ageing as a happy period in life. Gathered in the room were young people, for whom the subject of old age is not something they think on a daily basis, and senior citizens, who are now in a position to live for themselves and have some alone time. They asked questions and shared their own opinions. Below are the most interesting snippets of the discussion.
