Potlatch was the "information bulletin of the French Section of the Internationale lettriste" published 27 issues, from June 22 1954 to November 5 1957. Weekly for the first 12 issues, then monthly. Several well-known members, including Guy Debord, Mohamed Dahou, and Gil J. Wolman went on to form the Situationist International.

The potlatch was also a Bataillean concept, borrowed from Marcel Mauss's discussion of the potlatch and gift economy.
