Just what is it that makes today so familiar, so uneasy?

Mahmoud Khaled

Mahmoud Khaled (1982, Egypt) currently lives and works in Cairo, Egypt. In Khaled’s work subjectivity is made objective and objectivity is subjectified to simultaneously create an encounter with both the public and private domains. His work has been presented in solo and group exhibitions in Europe and the Middle East, including AUB Gallery (Beirut, Lebanon), BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art (Gateshead, UK), Stedelijk Museum Bureau Amsterdam (Netherlands), Bonner Kunstverein (Germany), UKS (Oslo, Norway), Salzburger Kunstverein (Austria), Contemporary Image Collective/CiC and NSA (Cairo, Egypt). His projects have featured in several international biennales such as Manifesta 8, European Biennale for Contemporary Art, Biacs 3, Seville Biennale, and 1st Canary Islands Biennale, Spain. He was awarded the Videobrasil in Context prize in 2012.
