Playmates and Playboys at a Higher LevelJ. V. Martin and the Situationist International

Mikkel Bolt Rasmussen - Playmates and Playboys at a Higher Level
After the infamous split in the Situationist International in 1962, the Danish artist J. V. Martin was unexpectedly put in charge of the group's Scandinavian section. This book is the first presentation of Martin's strange trajectory within the SI, in which he would remain a member until the group's dissolution in 1972.
Considering these facts the Central Committee of the Situationist International:
– proclaims that all followers of Nash, the falsifier, and Elde, his agent, will be considered enemies of the SI.
– confers on J. V. Martin the supreme authority to represent the Situationist International in the area covered by the former Scandinavian section (Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden) together with the task and the responsibility to reorganize the true Situationist elements in these countries before the opening of the 6th SI congress in Antwerp.
For the C. C. of the SI.
