In 1954 with Asgern Jorn he starts the “Mouvement international pour une Bauhaus imaginiste” polemizing with the new concept of geometrical art of Max Bill and the Concrete Movement group. Enrico Baj’s artworks are mostly made with mixed tecniques and materials, are ironic and funny.
Later the ironic side will become political commitment with artworks like the “generals”, “military parades” in the 60’s and 70’s, the most representative artworks of the artist’s production. Enrico Baj died in Vergiate on 16 june 2003.
