about

Art & Language is the name of a group of English artists who have spent their careers, some 40 years, working collectively, and are best known as forerunners to the current revival of collective work. Art & Language is also the title of their eponymous magazine, founded in 1968. Both the group and the publication center on critical analysis of the relationships between art, society and politics. In varied media, from painting to rock, these cofounders of conceptual art remain, even today, attentive observers of the after-effects of what they themselves call the "depressing collapse of modernism." Homes from Homes II is built around the major installation of the same title (2000-2001). Each element is described, annotated and put in the context of aesthetic, theoretical and political problematics through extended captions and essays by the artists, who question the notions of conservation, of institutional politics and the relation between art and its institutions.
