All That Is Solid melts Into Air:
BY MARSHALL BERMAN:




IN All That Is Solid Melts Into Air, is defined modernism as any attempt
by modern men and women to become subjects as well as objects of
modernization, to get a grip on the modern world and make themselves
at home in it. This is a broader and more inclusive idea of
modernism than those generally found in scholarly books. It implies
an open and expansive way of understanding culture; very different
from the curatorial approach that breaks up human activity into
fragments and locks the fragments into separate cases, labeled by
time, place, language, genre and academic discipline.

The broad and open way is only one of many possible ways, but it
has advantages. It enables us to see all sorts of artistic, intellectual,
religious and political activities as part of one dialectical process, and
to develop creative interplay among them. It creates conditions for
dialogue among the past, the present and the future. I t cuts across
physical and social space, and reveals solidarities between great artists
and ordinary people, and between residents of what we clumsily call the Old, the New and the Third Worlds. It unites people across
the bounds of ethnicity and nationality, of sex and class and race. It
enlarges our vision of our own experience, shows us that there is
more to our lives than we thought, gives our days a new resonance
and depth.

Certainly this is not the only way to interpret modern culture, or
culture in general. But it makes sense if we want culture to be a
source of nourishment for ongoing life, rather than a cult of the
dead.
