THE LAW OF QUALITY
The Law of Quality reproduces the art market: a work of art (the handwritten original score in a walnut frame) - several ‘buyers’ (we call them quality sponsors!) - rising prices = rising quality! Artists who perform the piece of music have upside in the sales of the artwork!
In 2010, Julia Schiwowa and Mirjam Lüthi commissioned The Law of Quality. Shortly thereafter, the composer read the text Marktkunst written by Wolfgang Ullrich, cultural studies scholar. The article, published in Lettre International’s 89th issue, inspired Patrick Frank to develop the concept for The Law of Quality. The Law of Quality is both a musical work and a work of art designed for the art market. The musical work The Law of Quality is a composition for piano and vocals (or instrumentalists); the work of art The Law of Quality is the handwritten original manuscript of the musical work, which everyone can purchase (thus becoming a quality founder).
On this homepage, you will find, amongst others, texts dealing with the subject-matter of The Law of Quality (theory): Relevance and importance of quantitative matters during late postmodernism.
