International movement for an imaginist Bauhaus

"... a swiss architect, Max Bill[?], has undertaken to restructure the Bauhaus where Klee and Kandinsky taught. He wishes to make an academy without painting, without research into the imagination, fantasy, signs, symbols - all he wants is technical instuction. In the name of experimental artists I intend to create an International Movement For An Imaginist Bauhaus."

Asger Jorn to Enrico Baj[?] December 1953

Sergio Dangelo[?], Giuseppe Pinot-Gallizio[?] were also involved in this movement.

Baj[?] sent Jorn a copy of Potlatch[?], the information bulletin of the Lettrist International in 1954.

There was one issue of Eristica[?], their journal issued in July 1956.

On July 28th 1957 the IMIB fused with the Lettrist International and the London Psychogeographical Association to form the Situationist International. Baj[?] was excluded from this process.
