Rente Rente – an diesen Stellschrauben muss die nächste Regierung drehen

'The Family' (this image 2007) Boy aged 16 years old Introduction By Zed Nelson "I began this project thirty years ago, in the summer of 1991. The wife of a friend was nine months pregnant, and I had an idea – based on time-lapse photography – to photograph them together as a couple, then soon after the birth, and then on the same day every year. I planned the photography sessions in a formal, almost scientific way. Each year the picture was made against the same backdrop, under the same lighting, with the same camera. This way there are no distractions, only the miracle of growth and the changes of time and ageing. Now amazingly the project has reached its thirtieth year. A boy grows before our eyes. The body language between the son and his parents fascinates me. In the beginning he stays close to his mother, then he gains independence, and then increasingly bonds with and mimics his father. These aren’t quirks of the photographic moment, but cycles of growth and development, clearly played out in the contact sheets. As time passes, what I find even more interesting are changes to the parents. The project - initially about a baby growing into a man – slowly shifts focus to the more subtle process of ageing and the passing of time."

Die gesetzliche Rente wackelt. Die Regierung hat große Geschenke an Ältere verteilt – auf Kosten der Jüngeren. Nach der Bundestagswahl muss sich etwas tun – Ideen gibt es genug

Augenbrauen lügen nicht, und bei Hubertus Heil sprachen sie Bände. Zur Frage, ob sich die SPD für die Rente mit 68 einsetzen werde, sagte der Arbeitsminister: „Ich finde, es ist der falsche Weg, das Renteneintrittsalter weiter zu erhöhen.“ Seine Augenbrauen aber verengten sich dabei so sprechend, als zweifle er an seinen eigenen Worten.

Heil musste den Satz im Juni dringend sagen, viele Wähler wollten ihn hören. Denn gerade hatte ein Gutachten des Wirtschaftsministeriums die Rentendebatte angestoßen, die „Bild“ titelte prompt: „Rente mit 68 – Hammer kurz vor der Bundestagswahl“. Damit stand genau das Wahlkampfthema im Raum, das Politiker hierzulande noch mehr fürchten als Klimakatastrophen und Hochwasser: die Rente.
