Less distant from the Situs, given the presence of Jorn and Constant among them, was 'St Cobra' (as Debord calls it in one letter), which he values for its commitment to 'experimental research' (its journal was punctuated by explorations of prehistoric art, folk motifs and universal forms like the spiral), but questions for its tendency to formalist 'neoprimitivism' (like other avant-gardes before it, Cobra emulated the impulsive picture-making of children and naifs).
(Arguably this movie comes closer to the neoprimitivism of D.H. Lawrence than to the gothic romanticism of Emily Bronte.)
