This is not related to the work with Debord. It's an independent production exposed in may 1959 at the gallery Rive Gauche, with a presentation text titled "Modifications. Peinture dÚtournÚe". It was reproduced in Textes et documents situationnistes 1957-1960 (Allia, 2004) and Discours aux peinguins (ENSBA, 2001).

Objet : Re: Situationist Paintings - Asger Jorn
Thanks Rob, but are you aware of any of these "updated" paintings? I can't figure out if it was tied to his work with Debord on Memoires. Have you heard of these?

Asger Jorn was connected to Cobra and then the International movement of Imagist Bauhaus, people associated with this and others associated with the Lettrists (particularly Guy Debord) formed the Situationist International. The painters associated with Cobra (the most well known being Karel Appel) made works that were deliberately child-like, similar to Art-Brut but being Marxist were suspicious of expression and were essentially "critical" works that combined figuration, gestural marks and "paint".
The're not too difficult to find.

A year ago I came across a brief description of a Situationist painter who had "updated" classical paintings to make them contemporary. I was almost certain this was Asger J÷rn, but I cannot locate a passage describing these works. Does anyone remember these paintings or have a lead on where a description of these paintings might be found?
