This volume of writings comprise a selection of essays and conferences on art and society, critical reflections on ‘Eurasia’, the history of US-American Indian relations, and observations on the city and nature.
A recurrent theme is his interrogation of the ideological complicity between monumental architecture and scripture – ‘architexture’ – as the foundation of Eurocentric belief and tool of others’ disenfranchisement.
Here, words, like the stones and motley materials he gathers for his assemblages, are remobilised otherwise; they become agents for ‘interrupting’ received ideas through writings that both disturb and delight, but never cease to provoke questions about the forces that shape our world.
Jimmie Durham is a rare and liberating voice in the architextural wilderness of contemporary life.

At the Centre of the World
Published in conjunction with the first North American survey of the work of Jimmie Durham, this beautifully illustrated catalogue explores Durham’s vital contributions to contemporary art since the 1970s, both in the US and internationally.
Born of Cherokee descent, in 1940s Arkansas, Jimmie Durham takes up such issues as the politics of representation, histories of genocide, and citizenship and exile. This volume collects an array of Durham s sculptures, drawings, photography, video, and performance. It includes essays about Durham s material choices and their metaphoric potential; his participation in the NYC art scene in the 1980s; his use of language; and his ties to Mexico after living in Cuernavaca. An interview with Durham traces his involvement with the American Indian Movement and his self-exile from the US, which along with his essays and poetry, illuminate his life and work. This book provides an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of Durham, arguably one of the most important artists working today.

Spring 2017 "Can Art Help?"
Spike #51 raises the question of the social role of art, and many more, with: Grzegorz Kowalski; Bob Flanagan’s Visiting Hours; Angela Bulloch on Damien Hirst; Cyprien Gaillard’s Desniansky Raion; a roundtable with Chus Martínez, Michaela Meise and Dieter Lesage; Dorothea Von Hantelmann; Kenny Schachter; Daniel Baumann; the portraits of Dorothy Iannone, Tetsumi Kudo, and Marie Angeletti; an interview with Josef Strau; an essay by Jan Verwoert; the TV series The Crown; Andrew Berardini on Jimmie Durham’s retrospective in LA…
The power of art and its social role are the subjects of a roundtable discussion with curator Chus Martínez, artist Michaela Meise and philosopher Dieter Lesage at Spike Berlin. Josef Strau talks about how art saved him, while Kenny Schachter finds it both a remedy and a defence. Daniel Baumann delves into the promise of form, and for the critic Jan Verwoert a key function of art is that it teaches forms of conduct. Profiles on the painter Dorothy Iannone and her connections to Fluxus, and the Japanese artist Tetsumi Kudo and his “philosophy of impotence”, are joined by pieces taking on the decline of the supermodel, the Netflix series The Crown, Jimmie Durham’s retrospective at the Hammer Museum, and much more.
Founded by the artist Rita Vitorelli in 2004, Spike Art Quarterly is a quarterly magazine on contemporary art published in English and German which aims at sustaining a vigorous, independent, and meaningful art criticism. At the heart of each issue are feature essays by leading critics and curators on artists making work that plays a significant role in current debates. Situated between art theory and practice and ranging far beyond its editorial base in Vienna and Berlin, Spike is both rigorously academic and stylishly essayistic. Spike’s renowned pool of contributing writers, artists, collectors and gallerists observe and reflect on contemporary art and analyse international developments in contemporary culture, offering its readers both intimacy and immediacy through an unusually open editorial approach that is not afraid of controversy and provocation.
