Joe Coghill (b. 1989, London, England) lives and works in Edinburgh.
Coghill is a multi-disciplinary artist, musician and experimental publisher. He graduated from Duncan and Jordanstone College of Art and Design in 2015 with a BA Hons in Time Based Art and is a current studio holder at The Number Shop studio and collective in Edinburgh. His practice explores cultural production within a post-conceptual context often incorporating sound, video, performance, social sculpture, facilitation and media distribution.

Aufheben Cassette is the product of a long term collaboration with artist, musician and friend Brandon Nightingale.
