Sample text

The surprise is that, by the turn of the century, advertising was already largely staking its claim to legitimacy and revenue on its expertise in advertisement production rather than media buying, even though its income had depended entirely on the latter. What is clear throughout is that advertising’s bid for institutional autonomy isolates the 26 The Impossible Place between Culture and Economy engineering of the image/consumer encounter as its own special domain, and consequently the legitimacy, rationality, and professional status of advertisers depends on claims to their special knowledge of a cultural rather than commercial event: the impact of representations on desires and decisions.

Ironically, advertising inflated its claims to possessing psychological technologies at the same moment that fears of brainwashing, propaganda, and massmedia manipulation reached their peaks. Mad Men met the Manchurian candidate over the prostrate figure of the new suburban housewife. This conjuncture sharply limited the terms of the debate: Like Galbraith, Vance Packard (1977) was only concerned with the “depth boys” and their capacity to hook into psychological drives that were unacknowledged by mundane market actors, whether consumer or producer.

Advertisements sell us something else besides consumer goods: in providing us with a structure in which we, and those goods, are interchangeable, they are selling us ourselves. (Williamson, 1978: 12–13) 29 Inside Marketing Significantly, the two functions are entirely separate, and the former plays no part in understanding the latter. Moreover, the former (commercial) function is not only trivial compared to filling the role of art and religion but it is also probably bogus: Williamson (1979: 57), apparently unconsciously replicating a whole history of advertising studies (see below, “institutional weakness theory”), simply states that advertising cannot be demonstrated to sell goods or secure any economic effects; it is therefore irrational and wasteful within capitalism’s own terms, and the only important issue is its ideological and cultural impacts.
