The Producer as Producer

In contrast to how things are in other artistic disciplines, the figure of the producer is not recognized in the art world or in the age of technical reproduction, although the work of most contemporary artists calls for systems of production that involve many different trades. The important thing is still the ‘artistic quality’ of the objects on show, rather than valorizing or acknowledging the interaction of the group responsible for producing them. But to what extent is the model that was designed to help revitalize and strengthen the sectors that make up the culture industry anything but an illusion today?
