Presentation Ceremony of the Book Final Faust



Presentation of Final Faust, a book produced during the workshop led by Douglas Edric Stanley and Cassandre Poirier-Simon at HEAD-Geneva, in collaboration with the Bodmer Lab and students in the Bachelor of Visual Communication and Master of Media Design programmes.

Moving from the paper book to digital scan, then again from digital scan to a paper book of another kind, Final Faust plays on dematerialisation and re-materialisation. It distils the most beautiful elements of the many editions of Goethe’s Faust, beyond the text itself, in order to generate a new volume. This project highlights the Bibliotheca Bodmeriana in its variety and ambition, through a final product which will itself, to top it off, find its own way into the collection of the Martin Bodmer Foundation.

A project by: Nicolas Baldran, Mathilde Buenerd and David Héritier.

The ceremony will take place at the Bodmer Foundation, Cologny.
