Participative performance

In 1962, Jacqueline de Jong published The Situationist Times, the only magazine of the Situationist movement available in English at the time. Six issues were published between 1962 and 1967, the first two were co-edited with Noël Arnaud, and the fourth and fifth issued focused on one theme. In 2012, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the magazine's publication, Boo-Hooray New York publishes The Situationist Times Facsimile by Jacqueline de Jong without her permission. The artist rejected this fake facsimile and published an erratum, called FAKE Simile. Today the artist invites the visitors to the opening to modify and destroy it on the spot along with the heritage of the magazine, which will constitute an original performance act by the public.
