Internationale Situationniste
Jaqueline de Jong begegnete 1959 dem dänischen Künstlern Asger Jorn. Durch ihn lernte sie die Gruppe “Spur”, die deutsche Sektion der Internationalen Situationisten Bewegung, kennen. 1960 traf sie Guy Debord in Amsterdam.
Als Jaqueline de Jong am Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam arbeitete, stand sie bereits mit den holländischen Künstler Constant, Armando und Har Oudejans, die Niederländische Sektion der Internationalen Situationisten, in Verbindung.
Bei den Internationalen Situationisten spielten am Anfang (1957-1962) Künstler eine wichtige Rolle, allen voran Asger Jorn und der Holländer Constant, der Belgier Maurice Wijckaert, der Italiener Pinot Gallizio, die Engländer Ralph Romney und Gordon Fazakerly, das deutsche Kollektiv “Spur”, die Skandinaver J.J.Thorsen, Jørgen Nash, Ansgar Eelde und Holländerin Jacqueline de Jong.

The Situationist Times (1962-1967)
Facsimile Edition (Boo-Hooray, 2013)

Jacqueline de Jong was the editor of the original Situationist Time. She approved Boo-Hooray’s production of a facsimile in January 2012, but she was not involved with the production of the facsimile, besides providing feedback regarding the bookplate (ex libris).

Below errata is added as Jacqueline de Jong does not agree with the predicate “facsimile” of  The Situationist Times made by Boo-Hooray. In several crucial respects, the issue differs too far from the original.

All issues
-The use of white margins around all the spreads, and the bleeding of text and images into the binding, does not represent the original format or layout. Moreover, in the original publications, each issue featured a variety of papers of differing weight, texture, and opacity; this variation has not been retained in the facsimile. The Boo-Hooray branding on the back cover and editorial text on the inside cover of all issues was added by Boo-Hooray and was not part of the original publication.
