In England, 1968, a group of British critics and theorists, Terry Atkinson, David Bainbridge, Michael Baldwin and Harold Hurrell, chose this name to define a collective project through which they could show their reflections and works. This group, mainly linked to Conceptual Art, remained active up until the mid 70s and presented their ideas in a magazine of the same name which was first published in May 1969. As from the end of 1969, new members joined the group, particularly in the United States, where Joseph Kosuth became a major figure and the American editor of the magazine. The members of Art & Language were always attentive to the ideological questions associated with artistic expression and, at the end of the 70s, their concerns became increasingly related to political problems. In their later works they opposed vanguard ideas, offering a series of reflections on the reception and production of certain institutions or museums. "Confessions: Incidents in a Museum", which took place at the Lisson Gallery, in London in 1988, reflected the desire to continue the dialogue with modernity. In 1993, the "Jeu de Paume National Gallery" held an exhibition on them, which included their most recent works.
