Aziz Hazara, born in Bamiyan, Afghanistan, is an interdisciplinary artist who works with hybrid practice involving photography, video, performance, and installation. His work examines how body as a site develops into a landscape of lost/forgotten/scattered layers further dealing with the concerns of body and the sense of displacement. In Khirkee, he worked with the local Afghani community.

Rajyashri Goody is a visual artist and ethnographer, currently exploring themes of ‘recycling as resistance’, food politics, and the power of the written word within the context of caste and class. In Khirkee, she explored ways to play with text and food through a series of interactions with local community members.

Tito Aderemi-Ibitola is a transdisciplinary artist with a focus on performance. At KHOJ,  she explored community through the city soundscape and investigating ideas on migrancy and space.
