The Situationist Times 1962-1967 Exhibition Catalog€42.00
Published on the occasion of the Exhibition at Boo-Hooray, Jacqueline de Jong, Situationist Times 1962-1967 is the first book to document Jacqueline De Jong’s efforts to make “a completely free magazine, based on the most creative of the Situationist ideas.” Started in 1962, The Situationist Times showcased a broad representation of a movement that had already become divided into the political and the aesthetic, with contributions by artists Asger Jorn, Gruppe SPUR, and Pierre Alechinsky, as well as architects, mathematicians and composers.. At the center of this publication was the shockingly young De Jong, an artist who truly embodied the situationist spirit in both attitude and action.
This fully illustrated catalog features previously unpublished photos, artworks, and notes made in the creation of the SI Times, as well as an introduction by Curator Johan Kugelberg, an essay by art-historian Roberto Ohrt and a transcription of De Jong’s graphically handwritten text “Critic on the Political Practice of Detournement” from the magazine’s Inaugural issue.
Full color. Edition of 250 copies in silk-screened and rubber-stamped boards.
Issued with a letterpress prospectus for Boo-Hooray’s forthcoming facsimile edition of The Situationist Times laid in.
