Hassan Khan (b.1975) is an artist, musician and writer. In 2018, he was appointed Professor of Fine Arts at the Städelschule. His work engages with familiar, shared conditions and undisclosed personal references to arrive at forms that demand their own specific medium: ones that suggest imagined communities, raise fundamental questions, channel conditions simmering under the surface, seduce and alienate, engage with expectations, pose mysteries as well as help to rearticulate our experiences with shifting structures of power. Hassan Khan was the winner of the Silver Lion of the 57th Venice Biennale (2017). His works shown at SAVVY Contemporary, Berlin; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; Villa Medici, Rome; Venice Biennale; Beirut Art Center; MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst, Frankfurt am Main; Kodak Passageway, D-CAF, Cairo; Secession, Vienna; SALT, Istanbul; and dOCUMENTA (13), Kassel. As a performing musician, his appearances include Ruhrtriennale, Essen; Intonal Festival, Malmö; Guggenheim, New York; and Portikus, Frankfurt am Main. Hassan Khan’s publications include Twelve Clues (2016), The Agreement (2011) and Nine Lessons Learned from Sherif El Azma (2009).
