Jimmie Durham


The artist, poet and political activist Jimmie Durham (b. 1940 in the US, living in Berlin), in the 1980s, became internationally known with objects and sculptures made of materials such as stones, animal skulls, graphite and carved wood. The relationship between history, architecture and monumentality, as well as a critical attitude towards political power relations and narratives of national identity are at the core of his artistic and literary work. In the series Roadkill (2015) stuffed animals submerged in graphite powder and thrown onto paper function as a tool. The act of moving and bouncing remains visible through the traces of graphite. Most recently his works were shown, among others, at Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (2015); Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (2014; 2003; 1993); Venice Biennale (2015; 2005; 2003; 2001; 1999); Museo Madre, Naples (2013; 2008); documenta, Kassel (2012; 1992); 29th São Paulo Biennial (2010); Centre Pompidou, Paris (2010).
