Dutch artist and graphic designer Jacqueline de Jong joined the Situationist International in 1960. De Jong suggested the publication of an English language newsletter in November of 1960, to be co-edited with British Situationist Alexander Trocchi (who was in prison at the time). The publication was widely discussed at Situationist conferences in 1961, and the first issue of The Situationist Times was published in May of 1962.
De Jong was determined to produce “a completely free magazine, based on the most creative of the Situationist ideas.
The archival materials, issues and artwork relating to the six issues of The Situationist Times, are a marriage of raging political polemic and superb and explosive visual art by masters such as De Jong, Jorn, Pierre Alechinsky, and Gruppe SPUR at the top of their game.
