In the opening conference of the summer workshop, Jimmie Durham presented his layered activity as a visual artist, poet, and performer, setting the premises for his seminar. The title of the conference Stones Rejected by the Builder summarized the basic concept of Durham's poetics and his idea of ​​an anti-monumental art, related to an alternative reading of European art history. As the artist said: “an art against architecture and against all certainty, where the artistic process is possible without the need for language and metaphors.”
