Jimmie Durham is an internationally acclaimed artist, writer, and poet. In the early 1960s he was active in theater, performance, and literature as well as in the U.S. Civil Rights Movement, and his first solo art exhibit took place in Austin,Texas in 1965. In 1969 he moved to Geneva, Switzerland, and returned to the U.S. in 1973. He was a political organizer in the American Indian Movement (AIM) from 1973 to 1980, director of the International Indian Treaty Council (IITC) and representative at the United Nations. From 1981 to 1983, he was the director of the Foundation for the Community of Artists (FCA) in NewYork City. In 1987 he moved to Mexico but decided to return to Europe in 1994 where he has been based until today. His texts and poems are published widely, as major solo and group exhibition have taken place worldwide. His restless and generous practices about thinking an each other under neocolonial attacks urges readers, listeners, viewers, and visitors alike to question and counteract the politics of today’s normalization rhetoric, speech, and violation against humans, animals, and the so-called nonhuman alike.
