They are also known for "Raster" art magazine launched in Warsaw in 1995. In Autumn 2000 it was transformed into an online weekly journal www.raster.art.pl. Raster has been instrumental in promoting the work of Wilhelm Sasnal, Marcin Maciejowski, Rafal Bujnowski, Aneta Grzeszykowska and Michal Budny.
Michael Baldwin and Mel Ramsden of Art & Language. The name Art & Language was adopted in 1968, to refer to a collaborative practice that had developed over the previous two years. The journal Art-Language was first published in May 1969. By the mid 1970s some 20 people were associated with the name, divided between England and New York. From 1976, however, the genealogical thread of Art & Language’s artistic work was taken solely into the hands of Baldwin and Ramsden, with the theoretical and critical collaboration of these two with Charles Harrison. They have been included in many international exhibitions including Documenta in 1972, 1982 and 1997. They are represented by the Lisson Gallery.
