Item description for Jimmie Durham (French Edition) by Stefano Boeri, Mario Fortunato, Giacinto Di Pietrantonio & Jimmie Durham...
Principally working with salvaged materials, Cherokee Jimmie Durham--poet, writer, and visual artist--makes tongue-in-cheek assaults on the enduring colonial foundations which are firmly anchored to the base of Western culture. Durham, an activist in the American Indian Movement in the 1970s, can sum up his artistic and political process in his will to "be so surgically specific it becomes universal." This small-format, compact publication presents more than 100 images of Durham's installations, which are enhanced by a series of essays by critics and essayists on the themes surrounding his work. Edited by Anna Daneri, Giacinto Di Pietrantonio, and Roberto Pinto.
