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

In the current issue of Artforum, Greil Marcus contributes a major review of the remarkable, never-before-published Situationist artist book / love story / erotic correspondence, Asger Jorn & Jacqueline de Jong: The Case of the Ascetic Satyr (subtitled "Snapshots from eternity). "Far more than any conventional memoir, the book catches the real mood, the ambience, of a love affair: the way it is, spinning from desire into loss, fury into abasement, everything heightened, everything new." Pictured here are some of the original notes between lovers, reproduced in this volume as scale replicas (printed front and back) in an enclosed portfolio. The bottom note reads, "The April of Eve on The Eve of April." The top note ends, "That's all down the pants and let us get to it."
