Time and again, the world’s most famous work in German literature has inspired visual artists, composers and directors. The exhibition presents masterpieces by names of international renown, such as Eugène Delacroix, Charles Gounod or Anselm Kiefer. Surprises await both true “Faust” devotees and newcomers to Goethe’s drama: the ingeniously staged exhibition takes visitors on a journey through the play’s narrative as they accompany Faust on his relentless quest for the meaning and purpose of modern life.
