Rather the purposes we find for the medium derive from the preoccupations of the culture at large as wel l as the particular momentums artistic revo lutions and long term developments - that inhere in the artworld at a given point in tIme . Placing emphasis on the use or purpose of the medium entails certain consequences for the issue of evaluation . For if we evaluate the obj ects produced in a medium in virtue of use , then our assessments will tend to be of two sorts ; evaluations of whether the obj ect implements the purposes it is aimed toward , and appraisals of whether such purposes are worth pursuing .
Apply ing this metaphor to media , unfettered by the claims of efficiency, one would envision each medium exploring all available effects , including those achieved in other media . Though the division of labor image is an unsupportable one in regard to the arts , it is clearly the idea behind the medium specific ity attempt to legitimatize emerging arts like film , video and photography. Employed as an offensive strategy, the position asserts that these medi a have a right to exist because they can do something perform some task that no other art can do .
The arts are marked by many trans-art endeavors . Many arts are devoted to narrative , and rhythm , as well , is an effect variously shared by different media , from Glass's Einstein on the Beach to Mondri an's One Way Boogie- Woogie. Furthermore , the history of art has been beneficially served by innumerable trans-art movements , such as German Expressionism , in which artists attempt to translate one theme or set of concerns into a number of different media . Thus , since the arts do not already approxi mate a neat division of labor, the medium specificity thesis must be construed as a recommendation that artists embrace a divi sion of labor.
