Finding aid for the Internationale Situationniste ephemera, 1947-1975

Scope and Content of Collection

An artificial collection of printed manifestoes, tracts, exhibition catalogs and posters created by members of Internationale situationniste (I.S.), including Enrico Baj, Asger Jorn and Guy Debord. The founding of this politically charged artistic and literary movement can be traced in the small amount of ephemera by the Internationale lettriste and Mouvement international pour un Bauhaus imaginiste groups, both precursors to I.S. A number of documents by Spur, a German faction of I.S., record the internal tensions within I.S. that would eventually disintegrate the movement.
