Join us for this unique online presentation with Jonas Bendiksen, where he takes us behind the scenes in the making of his work The Last Testament, about seven men who claim to be the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.
Imagined as a sequel to the Old and New Testaments of the Bible, The Last Testament features visual accounts and stories of men who claim to be the Messiah. Building on biblical form and structure, chapters dedicated to each Jesus include excerpts of their scriptural testaments, laying out their theology and demands on mankind in their own words. Jonas Bendiksen takes at face value that each one is the true Messiah returned to Earth, to forge an account that is a work of apocalyptic journalism and compelling artistic imagination.
