The contributors and collaborators of this journal came from a group of young artists who all attended the Salon de la Jeune Peinture. The Salon allowed its members to showcase their works as they attempted to define the role that their works should play in contemporary society. The first Bulletin, which took the form of more of a manifesto, a single sheet, followed the 16th Salon de la Jeune Peinture. After the Salon was outwardly criticized, the most involved of the participating artists decided to double-down on stating their views and positions through an editorial device. They also had begun to question the old hierarchy of art styles, and were moving towards making artistic choices based on political criteria and current news as opposed to purely aesthetic concerns.
