Asger Jorn & Jacqueline de Jong: The Case of the Ascetic SatyrAsger Jorn & Jacqueline de Jong: The Case of the Ascetic Satyr

Snapshots from Eternity

Published by JDJ/D.A.P..
Text by Kevin Repp, Marc Lenot, Roberto Ohrt, Karen Kurczynski, Axel Heil.

In 1962, while living in Paris, Dutch painter, sculptor and editor of The Situationist Times Jacqueline de Jong (born 1939) completed a set of 11 woodcut engravings, a medium in which she rarely worked. Danish painter and writer Asger Jorn (1914–1973) adored the engravings and decided to publish them. First, however, Jorn decided to compose a set of texts to accompany the art work, turning the suite of engravings into an "erotic novel" which they called "The Case of the Ascetic Satyr." Over the course of the next decade they jotted down playful (and occasionally sexually explicit) notes to each other on anything that came to hand--exhibition flyers, cocktail napkins, even an unused sheet from Memoires, Jorn's famous collaborative artist's book with Guy Debord. The texts are mostly in English, the language Jorn and de Jong usually used together, though some are in French, Danish, Dutch or German. Wordplay is prevalent, sometimes referring to James Joyce's Finnegans Wake.
In the end, the book project outlasted the relationship between the two artists, and so was never published. This beautifully produced artist's book--published in a signed and numbered edition of 200 copies--is thus not so much a facsimile as a true first edition, with the prints accompanied by replicas of the notes between the two lovers. A companion volume includes essays on the piece by leading art historians in the field, Kevin Repp, Marc Lenot, Roberto Ohrt, Karen Kurczynski and Axel Heil.

Asger Jorn: Louisiana LibraryAsger Jorn: Louisiana Library

Published by Louisiana Museum of Modern Art.
Edited by Jacob Wamberg, Michael Juul Holm, Poul Erik Tøjner. Text by Helle Brøns.

The second publication in the Louisiana Library series, from Denmark's Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, is an in-depth look at that institution's impressive Asger Jorn collection. Jorn, a founding member of COBRA (an acronym for Copenhagen, Brussels and Amsterdam), remains one of Denmark's most influential painters. He was also a founding member, with Guy Debord, of the Situationist International (SI). There has been a tendency to view Debord as the sole motivating figure behind the SI, but while Debord's role was indisputably central, Jorn's influence should not be underestimated. In his four years of activity with the group (1957-1961), Jorn not only continued to make some of his best paintings, he also assisted in the editing of the movement's journal, Internationale Situationniste. This volume provides an introduction to the life and work of this key figure of the European postwar art scene and is illustrated with color reproductions of the museum's entire Jorn collection.
