Working in sound, video, and performance, Hassan 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. For The Hidden Location (2004), Khan projected four simultaneous videos of several different scenarios, some authentic and others fabricated, to fashion a portrait of Cairo made out of individuals’ private conversations and actions.
