[DEBORD, Guy] JORN, Asger. [Contre le Cinéma] L’Institut Scandinave de Vandalisme Comparé présente… n.p. [Denmark?]: n.p., n.d. [ca. 1964?]. 48 p.; 21 x 29.5 cm.; black ink on single-sided stapled yellow and white sheets.

Typescript of Debord’s Contre le Cinéma, published by Asger Jorn in Denmark under the auspices of the Institut Scandinave de Vandalisme Comparé (Scandinavian Institute for Comparative Vandalism) in 1964. It reproduces the scripts of Debord’s first three films (Hurlements en faveur de Sade, Sur le passage de quelques personnes a travers une assez courte unité de temps, and Critique de la séparation)  as well as a preface by Asger Jorn (“Guy Debord et le problème du maudit”).

The text’s layout and typography are not the same as in Contre le Cinéma, no photographs are included, and the order in which the film scripts are presented also differs from the final version.

We are led to believe that this typescript originally belonged to Asger Jorn. It then made its way to Raphael Sorin at Editions Champ Libre, and was used to assist with the preparation of Guy Debord’s Oeuvres cinématographiques complètes (1978)
