Wittenberg, Germany, 1509: John Faustus, doctor and scholar, vows to conjure the devil. London, England, 2001: Jake and Dinos Chapman attempt the ultimate art taboo- meddling with a set of Goya etchings. From the Gothic cathedrals of the 16th century to the lair of the seven deadly sins- Faustus challenges the limits of life and art in pursuit of immortality.
