Shock of the Newsby Judith Brodie
In the early 20th century, visual artists began to think of the newspaper as the basis for verbal and visual puns, as a source of found language and images, as a means to mark time and place or express political criticism. Shock of the News - its title playing on that of Robert Hughes’ popular BBC television series and book The Shock of the New (1980) - traces the newspaper’s impact on modern art from 1909 to 2009.
