Bhagat, Alexis
Born 1974, New York
Lives in New York
Alexis Bhagat is a sound artist and writer from New York. His work is dedicated to dismantling authorship and authority through the cultivation of new forms of radically poly-vocal sound, the transmission of promiscuous conversation, and obsessive, never-ending correspondence. He speaks and writes on anarchism, prisons, and sound art, and is a founding member of the August Sound Coalition. Bhagat is intrigued by the “lecture” as a form ripe for intervention. Lecture on Democracy as Word and Brand, presented on December 2, is a multi-channel sound performance resulting from recordings made during a design charrette that the artist will have conducted in the gallery with New School students.
