Dancing on the Edge Urgent artistic dialogues with the middle east



The Second Copy: 2045


A memorial mockumentary on Moroccan art

What is the position of the contemporary art world? And how does it influence the artworks that are being made? The Second copy: 2045 is a conceptual performance that features a documentary in the year 2045, when political conflicts changed the world to a degree that only memories of art remain. The artist looks back on the dynamics of contemporary Moroccan art from 2000 till 2015 and takes the audience to an ambiguous space between realism and fiction.

In this performance we enter the world of the object. Language, movements and images no longer abide by a logical system, but are able to exchange and interact. The goal is to construct a new environment that is open to experimentation.
