Artist

Younes Baba-Ali

Younes Baba-Ali makes art that is unconventional and critical, mostly in public space or places uncommon to art practice. He holds a mirror up to society and confronts it with its ingrained habits and dysfunctions. Baba-Ali’s work often assumes the form of the readymade, but underneath its facade of simplicity there is a complex exercise in balance at work. He integrates technology, objects, sound, video and photography with political, social and ecological issues.

Younes Baba-Ali has exhibited work at ZKM | Center for Art and Media, Karlsruhe, Germany; BOZAR – Centre for Fine Arts, Brussels, Belgium; and MACAAL, Marrakech, Morocco, among others.
