Brad Nath is developing listening and space-making techniques through material research, live performances, installations, music, workshops, and ASMR. After finishing architecture school in 2018 he moved from New York to Berlin, where his attempt to reposition the role of the architect developed into an artistic practice. Often his process begins with the act of listening to and amplifying building modules for what their vibrations might expose about their production of infrastructural, intimate, and social materialities.
He has presented his work at Uferstudios (Berlin, 2022), Changing Room (Berlin, 2021), ZK/U Center for Arts and Urbanistics (Berlin, 2021), the "Parking Ist Bewegung" Festival during Gallery Weekend (Berlin, 2021), Neurotitan Gallery (Berlin, 2021), Callie's (Berlin, 2021), the B-Part Gallery (Berlin, 2021), the Amplify residency at ACUD (Berlin, 2020), the Ferrara Sotto Le Stelle (Italy, 2020), the Latvian National Museum of Art (Riga, 2019), the Berlin Performing Arts Festival (Germany, 2019), Uferstudios (Berlin, 2019), Potsdamer Tanztage (Germany, 2019), the Field Kitchen Academy (Germany, 2019), the In Parallel Spaces Festival (Germany, 2019), the Cesis Art Festival (Latvia, 2018), the Faculty of Music at the University of Toronto (Canada, 2018), and AIAS Crit X Live (New York, 2018).
Brad Nath is in the MA SODA course (Solo/Dance/Authorship) at HZT in Berlin. He received a Bachelor of Architecture degree from Cornell University in New York, where he also studied Sound Art with Marianthi Papalexandri-Alexandri in the Department of Music. His practice-based thesis “Acoustectonics” was advised by professors in both the Architecture and Music departments and was awarded a medal by the faculty for its outstanding merit. He has been living in Berlin since the summer of 2018.
