Before officially becoming part of the art world, Hassan Khan distinguished himself as one of the pioneers of underground music and experimental video in Cairo's underground scene. His artistic practice includes performance, publications, videos, sound and architectural installations. Khan investigates the challenges inherent in themes of identity and culture. Incorporating his own experiences growing up in Cairo, Khan has created conceptual works that attempt to construct a coherent narrative out of the city's disparate citizens and phenomena.
