The International movement for an imaginist Bauhaus was a small art movement that was founded in 1956 in Italy after a congress from September 2-September 8 held in Alba, Italy, convoked by Asger Jorn and Giuseppe Gallizio. The original manifesto was signed by Jacques Calonne, Constant Nieuwenhuys, Giuseppe Pinot Gallizio, Asger Jorn, Jan Kotik, Pravoslav Rada, Piero Simondo, Ettore Sottsass Jr., Elena Verrone and Gil J. Wolman.The manifesto was later printed in Potlatch No.27 (November 2 1957)

The group's views were in agreement with the Lettrist International’s program regarding urbanism and its possible uses (see Potlatch #26).


Sergio Dangelo and Elena Verrone were also involved in this movement.
