Rezensionen
"Die insgesamt 17 Artikel reflektieren eine beeindruckende Bandbreite von Perspektiven, Praktiken und Methoden, die gängige Narrative von Demenz als tragischem Verlust oder als 'lost self' hinterfragen. Diesen stereotypen Erzählungen stellt der Band vielschichtige und lebensbejahende Alternativen entgegen, die wir dringend brauchen." Anita Wohlmann, MEDIENwissenschaft, 2 (2017) "Dieser reichhaltige Band macht von neuem aufmerksam und gibt sowohl der Forschung als auch politischem Engagement wertvolle Anregungen." Susanne K. Christ, KULT_online, 46 (2016)
