Collection Note:
K-Tel Hits is a continuation of Bill Barminski’s inquisitive attitude towards the goals and values of everyday life within America. K-Tel, a consistent theme in his work, is a famous record label company that in this case helps provide further insight into Barminski’s own thoughts on consumer culture. Clearly participating in consumerism, whether it’s by choice or a lack of, the purposeful “branding” of his work speaks to a learned and inherent need for items in our everyday lives to be branded or claimed, not necessarily by individuals but entities such as K-Tel. This isn’t to vilify K-Tel or companies like it, but to generate discourse through colorful, accessible means in a way only Bill Barminski does.
