"Even the most perfect reproduction of a work of art is lacking in
one element: its presence in time and space, its unique existence
at the place where it happens to be. This unique existence of the
work of art determined the history to which it was subject
throughout the time of its existence. This includes the changes
which it may have suffered in physical condition over the years as
well as the various changes in its ownership. The traces of the
first can be revealed only by chemical or physical analyses which
it is impossible to perform on a reproduction; changes of ownership
are subject to a tradition which must be traced from the situation
of the original"

dialectical relation between ‘final goal’ and ‘movement’, i.e.
between theory and practice. At every crucial stage of the
revolution it reappears, always in a more advanced form and with
reference to different phenomena. For a problem always makes its
appearance first as an abstract possibility and only afterwards is

flow of thoughts, but their arrest as well. Where thinking suddenly
stops in a configuration pregnant with tensions, it gives that
configuration a shock, by which it crystallizes into a monad. A
historical materialist approaches a historical subject only where
he encountes it as a monad. In this structure he recognizes the
sign of a Messianic cessation of happening, or, put differently, a
revolutionary chance in the fight for the oppressed past. He takes
cognizance of it in order to blast a specific era out of the
homogenous course of history — blasting a specific life out of the
era or a specific work out of the lifework. As a result of this
method the lifework is preserved in this work and at the same time
canceled; in the lifework, the era; and in the era, the entire
course of history."
