Brad Nath's material research, live performances, sound structures and urban interventions intend to expose the agency embedded within the world we are building for ourselves. Often his process involves amplifying bricks to expose the power of the Anthropocene's fundamental module. His current research works to expand the legal concept of "environmental personhood" in an attempt to define what it might mean for a built environment to have its own rights, privileges, and responsibilities—specifically, he is exploring this through a series of body-based experiments in various public spaces throughout Moabit, Berlin.
He has presented his work at ZK/U Center for Arts and Urbanistics (Berlin, 2021), Callie's (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 currently in the Masters of Solo/Dance/Authorship program at HZT in Berlin, where he is developing a posthuman understanding of the body to expose the political potentiality of the modules of the built environment. He holds 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.
