At the back of Zeus
the Knights' Hall, the Hague, the Netherlands
On the occasion of the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome, Aziz Bekkaoui presents At the back of Zeus, in the Knights’ Hall. A swirling parade in which Aziz Bekkaoui depicts the past, present and future of Europe. A spectacular performance in which fashion, design, image and sound merge.
Aziz Bekkaoui tells the story of the amorous Zeus, who in the guise of a bull kidnaps princess Europe. He uses iconographic depictions of historical events and appeals to our collective European memory.
The presentation was attended by Queen Beatrix, the entire government and government representatives from all EU countries.
