Overheard and Interrupted (2016)
Compiling works and writings from the last 13 years, this comprehensive monograph on American artist, writer and theorist Brandon LaBelle (born 1969) captures the artist’s expansive practice. Originally from Los Angeles and currently based in Berlin, LaBelle has been at the forefront of the sound arts since the mid-1990s, developing projects that adopt methods of intervention and spatial practice, that work with voice and modes of address, and that stage scenes of public gathering based on notions of interruption and radical sharing. LaBelle is a highly unique artist and writer, engaged in collaborative and public work, and the monograph documents his diverse activities in a range of international contexts. It includes a CD of a recent line performance by Labelle, essays on the artist by writer Fred Dewey, curator Edit Molnár, and cultural theorist Jeremy Woodruff, along with an interview with the artist by Elena Biserna.
