Branden W. Joseph (1967) received his Ph.D. from Harvard University in 1999. His area of academic specialization is North American and European art after the Second World War, with a particular focus on those individuals and practices that cross medium and disciplinary boundaries between art, music, and film.

Present in his first book, Random Order: Robert Rauschenberg and the Neo-Avant-Garde (2003), which examined the artist’s development from 1951 to 1971 from a theoretical perspective, these concerns have been explored further in the books: Anthony McCall: The Solid Light Films and Related Works (2005), Beyond the Dream Syndicate: Tony Conrad and the Arts after Cage (2008), The Roh and the Cooked: Tony Conrad and Beverly Grant in Europe (2012), Experimentations: John Cage in Music, Art, and Architecture (2016), and the edited volume of Kim Gordon's writings, Is It My Body? Selected Texts (2014).
