Hassan Khan [eg]

Hassan Khan was born in 1975, he currently lives and works in Cairo as an artist, composer and writer. His work is nourished by the urban reality of Cairo, a city of 16 million inhabitants. Both lascivious and oversurveilled, this gigantic metropolis, drained by various ideological networks, manages the individual and the society in a constant friction of competing matrices. Television and religion, tablas and electric guitars, kitsch beauty and promiscuity, everything mixes in an acceleration of contemporary data characterising the actual Middle East, and – by extension and translation – any mega city in the world.
