"States of Mind" january - march 2014 

Born in 1961 in the USA. Lives and works in Los Angeles.

Multimedia artist Sam Durant addresses a variety of political, social, and cultural issues, often drawing inspiration from American history. He has explored subjects like the civil rights movement, southern rock music and the centuries-long struggle between Native Americans and white settlers. Most of his projects show a clearly political activism, permeated with ironical and humorous comments. Through the use of seemingly common objects – mirrors, chairs or maps – Durant reflects on questions concerning mass consumption, neoliberal economy and the geopolitical consequences of imperialism.
