Time & Quality: Oliviero Toscani, Hal Foster & John Heartfield | Episode 11

Time & Quality: Oliviero Toscani, Hal Foster & John Heartfield | Episode 11
Is there a necessary correlation between “sweat equity” (labor) and the way a work of art/design is perceived? What’s the relationship between time and the quality of a work? In what ways are direct forms of visual art and design problematic? Must work show evidence of “difficulty” of manufacture in its’ final form?

In this episode Elliott Earls uses an off handed remark by the critic Hal Foster as a point of departure to explore the difference between “importance” and “goodness” in the products of art and design. The 1980’s advertising of Benetton Corporation, Port-A-Potties and Horseshit are also discussed in this episode.
