F/T15 Goethe-Institut Korea + Nolgong “Being Faust – Enter Mephisto”
This event has ended.
Goethe-Institut Korea teams up with game development company Nolgong for this reinterpretation of the famous German legend. First presented in Seoul in 2014, the popular project takes Goethe’s masterpiece “Faust” and fully updates it for the digital age. The audience members themselves play the role of Doctor Faust, using their smartphone to log into the game to begin their contract with Mephisto&co. Around the venue are various installations with values and ideals that the participant can “buy”. The fun and interactive game asks the same serious questions as the original play: What do I value in life? What are my personal values based on? Which price am I willing to pay for success?
