The Second Copy: 2045 – Youness Atbane



Country: Morocco Genre: Conceptual Performance Duration: 45 mins Language: English with Arabic subtitles
The Second Copy: 2045 is a conceptual performance featuring a documentary made in the year 2045, a moment at which political conflicts will have changed the world to such a degree that the only remnants of art exist in the form of memories.
The artist reflects on the dynamics of contemporary Moroccan art and invites the audience into an ambiguous space between realism and fiction. In this performance, language, movement and images no longer abide by individual logical systems, but are able to interact. The aim is to create a new and experimental environment through audience interaction.


Youness Atbane’s first performance. “There is something intriguing about his attempts to see the present with the eyes of the future.”
