An institutionalized avant garde is:

roof that you can change the system within the system;
One of the more bizarre consequences of nationalism;
A contradiction in terms;
A testament to a nationís committment to excellence;
Necessary;
Inevitable;
A liberal conspiracy;
A conservative conspiracy;
Coincidental with the end of art;
The life of art;
A good argument for garrets;
A garret for good arguments;
Dangerous;
Tame;
The unwritten Brave New World;
Bureaucracy in the service of art;
Art in the service of bureaucracy;
A noble union of art and bureaucracy;
A machine with decision procedures;
At odds with market capitalism;
Intent on revolution;
co-operative of artists.
