A maelstrom of colour
by Reto Steffen (Switzerland)
Energy, movement and colour come together at “Pigalle basketball” court. The court was a parking lot before Ahmed decided to rent it from the city and transform it into an inner city safe space for kids and into a work of art.
It is open every day and free for everyone, kids from the neighbourhood and from much farther away come to play with each other and channel their energy into a maelstrom of movement and colour that fascinated me.
