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.
