Malmö Konsthall and Museum Jorn. It forms part of These are Situationist Times, an exhibition, digitization and publication project developed by Torpedo (Oslo) and Ellef Prestsæter, in close collaboration with Jacqueline de Jong and generously supported by Nordic Culture Point, the Norwegian Arts Council and Mondriaan Fund. The Jacqueline de Jong Papers, including the archives of the Situationist Times, is held at Beinecke Rare Books and Manuscripts Library, Yale University. Photography by Øivind Möller Bakken.
The Situationist Times: Same Player Shoots Again! unfolds the material assembled by de Jong and her co-editor Hans Brinkman in the early 1970s for a seventh, unrealized issue devoted to pinball. The documents – presented to the public for the first time – testify to an extensive investigation of the culture and topology of pinball – arguably the quintessential situationist game. In collaboration with Koosje Ruigrok, Jacqueline de Jong produced a special pinball wallpaper for the exhibition. The show also featured a free-play electro-mechanical pinball machine by courtesy of Oslo Pinball Club.
Additionally, the exhibition provides a rare opportunity to browse original copies of the Situationist Times 1-6. A digital interface developed by the Scandinavian Institute for Computational Vandalism invites you to navigate the riches of the magazine, its labyrinths, knots and controversies, as well as browse through the issues together with de Jong, who tells stories of their making in a series of newly produced video clips.
