How do we live with death? What is a good death? What will remain of us? With these questions, you embark on a tour of the exhibition.


Voices from different faith communities talk about their ideas of the afterlife. You will be part of a video conference with people from twelve countries who have accompanied other people to their deaths. An audio-light narration lets you experience the processes in the brain from a scientific-medical perspective. You will gain insight into transcultural thanatopractices and into an Islamic corpse washing. And you will encounter the questions: How (in)equal are living and dying conditions worldwide? How much is a human life worth to us? And is the current extinction of species threatening the self-extinction of our species?

The interactive tour provides an opportunity for discussion and addresses the phenomenon of death in the context of the irrepressible evolution of life.
