Do followers of Lyotard consider modernism deconstructive? I ask only because I've read that
Furthermore, says Lyotard, a work can become modern only if it is first postmodern, for postmodernism is not modernism at its end but in its nascent state, that is, at the moment it attempts to present the unpresentable, “and this state is constant” (Lyotard 1984 , 79). The postmodern, then, is a repetition of the modern as the “new,” and this means the ever-new demand for another repetition.
And I wonder what that has got to with 'deconstruction'?
