Chronotopic Bodies and the We of Aesthetic Discourse

by Miriam Jordan

London: Blue Medium Press, 2010

Jordan provides a close analysis of Hassan’s video works in the context of Bakthin’s theories on self-other relationships. Through the juxtaposition of a mixture of genre and form - children’s toys and impressions of war, historical and personal imagery - Hassan’s work emphasizes the dialogical relationship between people. The works thereby effectively invoke in the viewer a sense of answerability, responsibility, and complicity. Hassan calls the spectators to account for the way in which their opinions are formed and how these inform their interaction with the world.
