As a teen, Hassan Hajjaj moved from Larache, Morocco to London. After spending years away from Morocco, Hajjaj has taken on an exploration of his roots. Commuting back and forth between the two countries and operating within the long historic link between Britain and the Arab world, his artistic practice engages the dialogue between Africa and Europe, old and new, pop culture and high culture. In particular, Hajjaj’s artwork examines how Arabs are represented in today’s continuous flow of communication and reveals the multifaceted nature of identity.
