Hasan Hujairi

Music - 2023
Hasan Hujairi is a Bahraini artist, composer and writer. His work often explores the notion of the outsider composer, confronting historiographic superstructures and the nature of constructing narratives within time. He holds a doctorate of Musical Arts in music composition from Seoul National University, where he researched reorienting the narrative associated with the maverick composer tradition to be more inclusive of composers working outside the Western classical music tradition. He also holds a Masters in Economics from Hitotsubashi University in Tokyo, focused on economic history and regional economics. He wrote his thesis on the significance of conceiving of the Gulf region in both its littorals within a Braudelian historiographic framework. Since January 2023, he has been managing the inaugural Music Department of the Sharjah Art Foundation.
