Engy Mohsen

(b. 1995, Cairo) is an architect and visual artist based in Cairo. While spatial design remains at the core of her practice, she also works with discursive acts, conversation as a medium, photography, painting and performance. She is interested in the notions of ‘participation’ and ‘collectivity’ through designing and hosting formats of meeting that invite non-artists and artists to produce knowledge about how spaces can be organized to include the ‘other’. She studied architecture and urban design at the German University in Cairo and the Brandenburg University of Technology in Cottbus, Germany. She has participated in independent art programs like Roznama Studio Program and Mass Alexandria. Her works have been exhibited in group shows in Abu Dhabi, Alexandria, Amman, Beirut, Cairo, London and Venice.

She has been part of educational programs such as CILAS, Basata School in South Sinai, Dahshur Film Residence and Mass Alexandria. Her questions revolve around the different modes of knowing, the intersection between the community and the institution and the gap between experience and expression.
