Hello! I was confused with this question because based on my map of the passage, I thought that contemporary art was different than modern art. I noted that Theodor Adorno made a comment on modern art as being somewhat transient and ephemeral but I didn't really see any explicit mention of him mentioning contemporary art. My interpretation of the answer is that contemporary art and modern art are considered the same? So when Adorno made the comment on modern art - he's also referring to contemporary?

Any help is appreciated!

Hi Emily,

Yes, the terms Modern and Contemporary are being used interchangeably. The best way to approach this, was that Adorno only commented on modern artwork. So, because the question asked about Adorno's description of contemporary art, it must have been referring to the only thing that Adorno described in the passage.
