Published in the name of Art & Language, the article considers the expansion of artistic and curatorial practices that followed in the wake of the Conceptual Art movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s. As the site of production moved from the studio to the museum, there was a massive increase in the power of the institution to determine the production of art (comparable to the tendency of higher-educational institutions increasingly to determine intellectual production). It is suggested that the means to a qualified resistance might be found in a mode of conversational practice with a necessarily recursive dimension.
