Jacqueline de Jong

Jacqueline de Jong (Enschede, 1939) is a versatile and committed artist, drawer, sculpture and graphic artist. During the late 1950s De Jong lived in Paris, where she worked in the boutique of Christian Dior, and London, where she studied drama at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. She returned to Amsterdam, where she worked at the applied arts section of the Stedelijk Museum, as the assistant of director Willem Sandberg, between 1958 and 1961. Early in the ’60 De Jong joined the International Situationists; she was expelled from the movement by Guy Debord because of her solidarity with the Gruppe SPUR. Between 1962 and 1968 she was the editor and publisher of The Situationist Times. Already in those years her work was exhibited all over Europe and the United States. De Jong’s activities currently receive much attention from both curators, galleries and a young generation of artists.
