Youness Atbane & Youness Aboulakoul

The Architects


Nominated for the ZKB Acknowledgement Prize and the ZKB Audience Prize

A plant, a mug, a book, a chair, a lamp, a bottle – those were the pitiful objects which formerly highly-paid traders carried out of their Wall Street offices after they were fired for having triggered the financial crisis in 2008. This paradoxical image has inspired the visual artist and choreographer Youness Atbane and the dancer Youness Aboulakoul to create a choreographic duet in which they question the relationships between object, art and crisis in cleverly original and sharpwitted ways.
