Their truth or falsity awaits confirmation by the future; logic will not settle the question. 10 10. This sketch-like portrait of the historian of the avant-garde of course summarizes a far m o r e nuanced reality In fact, it fits art critics better than art historians, because they take sides in the heat of the history that is being made around t h e m and to which their own writings contribute. O n one side, we w o u l d find, in 1913 for example, w h e n the "historical avantgardes" came into being, Royal Cortissoz as the defender of the establishment and, on the other, R o g e r Fry as the formalist advocate of the n e w art; or today, n o w that we hear of various n e o - , post-, or transavant-gardes, Hilton Kramer as neoconservative critic and Benja­ min B u c h l o h as post-Adornian theorist In the meantime, the history of the avant-gardes has been written m o r e often than not by historians of art for w h o m the avant-garde is after all a style and m o d e r n art is a cultural heritage.

What at first rose before you with all the neutrality of a corpus gathered without bias now appears to you as the necessary object of a consensus—a consensus, furthermore, that ought to be universal. In order for art to be identified with everything we as humans call art, all of us would need to agree about it. But this consensus is problematic from the start, if only be­ cause it is too obvious that we don't agree. To you, as a sociologist, it is even more problematic, because it implicates and involves you while you seek to maintain scientific objectivity.

The art historian's gaze was retrospective, yours is prospective. The art historian had inherited an inventory of things and he or she ruled over this domain as the distant representative of humanity as it is. You see yourself as the committed emissary of humanity as it will be or should be. You watch over the same cul­ tural heritage, but it is not made up of things; it is made up of practices. The art of the past interests you only insofar as it holds out promise for the future. As a corpus, it simply doesn't exist.
