While we all aspire to grow old gracefully, the meaning and value of growing up often elude us . Berlin is transitioning from a playground for Peter Pans into a self-consciously conventionally more serious capital. The city itself  risks trading its creative vitality, charm, spunk and sex appeal for the material and social trappings of sophistication, while Berliners are evaluating what ´maturity´ means within their own personal, intellectual and emotional lives. For ´Ripe,´ Ana Finel Honigman and Amir Fattal invited leading Berlin artists to ruminate on their relationship to the compromises, contradictions, tensions and difficulties of adulthood. Many of the artists present poetic abstract reflections on progress, evolution and adult ideals, while others evoke icons of youth to highlight the energy and integrity that may be left behind in the maturation process.
