The Second Copy: 2045
Summerhall Festival - Red Lecture Theatre
From out of the future, dissolving himself in fiction, the character of Youness Atbane observes the dynamics of contemporary art in Morocco. As a witness in a documentary made in 2045, he is interviewed on his position as a Moroccan artist and turns this into the subject of his performance. In view of this, Atbane creates a fictional archive about Moroccan art production from the millennium to 2015 and frees facts from their trap in present-day logic.
