Fathi Hassan - Egypt

Art Brokerage: Fathi Hassan Egyptian Artist: b. 1957. Fathi Hassan (born 10 May 1957) is an Egyptian-born artist known for his installations involving the written word. In 1976, Hassan worked for some months in a library Madbuli in Cairo.The Ministry offered him a job and he moved to Baghdad in 1977. In 1979, he received a grant from the Italian Cultural Institute in Cairo and moved to Italy. He enrolled at the Accademia di Belle Arti of Naples in 1980 to study set design having found that the painting course was full. He graduated in 1984 with a thesis on the influence of African art in Cubism. While he was studying and in the year after graduating, Hassan also worked as an actor and set designer at RAI (Radiotelevisione Italiana works) in Naples and Rome. Hassan is one of the artists of the African Diaspora. Hassan received recognition from the Ministry of Culture (Egypt) in 1989, and he was the first artist to be selected to represent Africa at the "Aperto '88" section of the Venice Biennale. Chosen by Dan Cameron, Giovanni Crandant. Hassan's work often emphasizes power relations and the relationship between the oral and written word; drawing upon his Nubian heritage and installations , he places particular emphasis on the loss of language under the dominance of empire. Most of his scripts are based upon kufic calligraphy, but remain deliberately illegible and impossible to decipher. In his video Blessed Nubia the original language of the Egyptian region Nubia was analyzed. Listings wanted.
