The researcher on ageing Klaus Sames from Ulm is the third guest in the series “Moll trifft... ”. Professor Sames’ theme is literally a matter of life and death, because he is a cryonicist. Cryonicists are people who intend to have themselves frozen immediately after dying so that – when medicine has advanced sufficiently to be able to cure their illnesses – they can be reawakened.

The fact that this idea encounters not only approbation and that particularly theologians and doctors, who hold interpretive sovereignty over life and death in our society, vigorously oppose the ideas of cryonics is only one example of the fascinating pieces of information that you will be able to take home on this evening.


About Moll trifft... :
In the new program series Moll trifft... the director of the IKOB, Frank-Thorsten Moll, invites guests from various areas of society to share in a discussion at the museum.

Visitors have the opportunity of gaining information by themselves entering into conversation with Frank-Thorsten Moll and his guest. The focus of the new format is the individual relationship of the respective guests to the current exhibition as well as to the annual theme of the IKOB. The integration of contents from the media, interruptions of all sorts and a healthy portion of humour break up the familiar conversational routine and create an unhampered framework for a free-spirited and critical discussion.

The series Moll trifft... allows visitors to participate in the discussion and promises an entertaining and stimulating evening at the IKOB!
