Ein Gesamtkunstwerk

The Last Faust is Humm’s Gesamtkunstwerk, his total work of art, and offers an unparalleled artistic examination of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s tragic masterpiece. In this mammoth project, Humm uniquely considers both Faust Part One and Part Two with the intent to make both books more accessible and apply its universal themes to contemporary culture.

The Last Faust is a highly intellectual body of work. It is an ambitious multi-layered exploration of narrative through different artistic lenses and media. The result is an expansive and prismatic journey through a great work of literature by way of the following:

108 minutes Feature Film
Novella with illustrations
41 Fine Art Photographic Images
37 Watercolour Paintings
Collections of Oil Paintings & Bronze Sculptures

Synopsis

The Last Faust transposes Goethe’s epic saga of damnation to the year 2059. Faust’s successor, Dr Goodfellow is the CEO of Winestone, the world’s largest and most secretive tech firm. His predecessor Dr Faust sold his soul, traded for the creation of the first Superhuman, to the devil Mephisto, in the manifestation of a Hedge Fund manager. However in the process, he unleashes a much darker force on to the world.
