    'The art world is taking on some of the less creditable aspects of showbiz' ~Robert Hughes

    The Shock Of The New is an eight part 1982 documentary series written and presented by Robert Hughes, that offers a comprehensive view on the history and development of modern art, from its rise in the 1880s to its present “fall.”

    Hughes later returns to the story with the book The Shock of the New: Art and the Century of Change and in The New Shock of The New an hour length documentary film released in 2004.

    Although The Shock of The New is considered a British, American and West German production, it has been included here. This is because the series was written and presented by Australian critic, Robert Hughes.
