“no one has ever been modern. modernity has never begun. there has never been a modern world. the use of the past perfect tense is important here, for it is a matter of a retrospective sentiment, of a rereading of our history. i am not saying that we are entering a new era; on the contrary we no longer have to continue the headlong flight of the post-post-postmodernists…” – bruno latour

… we are no longer obliged to cling to the avant-garde of the avant-garde; we no longer seek to be even cleverer, ever more critical, even deeper into the ‘era of suspicion’. no, instead we discover that we have never begun to enter the modern era.
have we ever been modern?
