In this episode of the Apollo 40 under 40 podcast, Gabrielle Schwarz speaks to the artist Mahmoud Khaled. Khaled, who was born in Alexandria and now lives in Cairo and Oslo, considers how an upbringing in Egypt has shaped his work on the themes of gender, queer desire, politics and power. He discusses past projects including his Proposal for a House Museum of an Unknown Man, presented at the Istanbul Biennial in 2017, and future plans – such as for a fictional exhibition catalogue to accompany this imagined museum.

The second series of the Apollo 40 under 40 podcast features short interviews with some of the artists, thinkers, businesspeople and patrons celebrated in this year’s Apollo 40 under 40 Middle East, presented in partnership with Deutsche Bank Wealth Management. Previous episodes can be found here.
