Danielle de Picciotto is the multidisciplinary artist and invited curator in our new Humanletter No.06 INTERIM and we couldn't be more pleased with the amazing work she has submitted.
Danielle is a wanderer. She explores the regions between the inner and outer edges of our collective psyche and turns her impressions into her interdisciplinary art. She works in the fields of music, art and literature. She was born on Fort Lewis Military Base in Tacoma, Washington. In 1987, she moved from NYC to Berlin to initiate the Berlin Love Parade with Matthias Roeingh aka. Dr Motte. Then she founded the Ocean Club together with Gudrun Gut, became singer of the Berlin band Space Cowboys and began working with Alexander Hacke (founding member of the Einstürzende Neubauten) in 2001. They have been touring the world with their music as "hackedepicciotto" ever since. As a solo artist, Danielle has released two solo albums, with focus on spoken word, electronic sounds and her violin. She has produced several films for the Foreign Office, composed music for theater plays and films, and worked for projects / cooperations, such as Monika Workshop, Malaria Crime & The City Solution, Mick Harvey, Sonae; recording a total of sixteen albums.
