Within the framework of the “Frankfurter Positionen”, the MMK Museum für Moderne Kunst Frankfurt am Main is presenting the first institutional solo exhibition of Hassan Khan (b. 1975) to take place in Germany. The artist, musician and writer lives and works in Cairo, Egypt.

Hassan Khan has named his exhibition after a novel published in 1974 by the American science-fiction author Philip K. Dick. Set in a futuristic America, the story is about a world-famous television star who, after an attempt on his life, wakes up in a shabby hotel room only to realize that the world no longer knows who he is. The solution to the riddle is in the discovery of a reality-distorting drug which has catapulted him into a parallel world. Both in the title and between the individual chapters, a famous song by the English composer John Dowland (1562–1626) is quoted.

For the exhibition at the MMK 3, Hassan Khan has developed five new works and combined them with an already existing one. Although they all make use of different media, they are linked to one another through allusions, resonances and relationships encountered again and again throughout the workgroup.
Opening: Thursday, 29 January, 7 pm
