These are Still Situationist Times with Jacqueline de Jong
Thursday, December 16, 2021 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm
Jacqueline de Jong has been a strong and fiercely independent voice of resistance since the fiery debut of her Situationist Times in 1962. Joining us from her home in Amsterdam, Jacqueline will talk about the tense dynamics of art and protest in the 1960s, from the disputes with Debord that shaped first issue of The Situationist Times to her defiant posters for the Atelier Populaire during the Parisian uprisings of May 1968. From there she will turn to her latest work, including the long-delayed seventh number of the Situationist Times and her latest paintings, inspired by the immigration crisis in Europe, currently on display in the solo exhibition Borderlands at Ortuzar Projects in New York. We hope you will join us for this rare opportunity to reflect on the changing role of art in cultures of protest across two distinct historical eras.
