About

Faust, the genious project-maker and engineer looks back at the work of his life-time: prospering cultural landscapes, newly created lands, modern harbours and a merchant fleet carrying goods from far-away continents. Faust is the logistics-king of international free trade, with Mephisto as his chief ideologue and henchman. Only a nameless traveller and a friendly old couple, Philemon and Baucis, appear as their adversaries, who quickly fall prey to the capitalist turnover.
Which are the geographies of this mephistophelian relation to nature, and how could the laments for Philemon and Baucis be translated into a critique of political economy?
How could Faust be (mis-)read today, from an ecological degrowth perspective?
