Jimmie Durham began to work as a sculptor in 1963, when at the same time he had been politically active in the American civil rights movement since the early 1960s. In 1987, he left the US, first settled in Mexico and finally in 1994 in Europe. In 2012, in his contribution to dOCUMENTA (13) called "The History of Europe", Durham dealt with the idea of Europe and unmasked it as a geopolitical invention. In his artist's book "In Europe", Durham assembles portrait photographs of himself in various places and in situations that show the word "Europe".

The book was published on the occasion of the exhibition
Jimmie Durham. Here at the Center.

The publication can be purchased at local bookshops, via the website of Buchhandlung Walther König, and at Neuer Berliner Kunstverein. Members of Neuer Berliner Kunstverein can buy the book at n.b.k. for the special price of 15.00 Euro.
