Jimmie DurhamBook - 2017
An updated edition of the first - and still most authoritative - book on the legendary American iconoclast Twenty years ago, Phaidon published what has become the definitive study of Arkansas-born Jimmie Durham's career. This highly anticipated new edition brings this important book up to date, tracing his remarkable life from his experiences in the US, Mexico, and Europe - including his early involvement with the American Indian Movement - to his most recent output. It presents a full assessment of his sculptures, performances, wall-based collages, and ersatz ethnographic displays, that deliver ironic assaults on the colonizing procedures of Western culture.
