Shock v. Awe

Beech, Dave (2006) Shock v. Awe. Art Monthly, 300.

Type of Research: Article
Creators: Beech, Dave

‘Shock versus Awe’, argues that ‘to shrug off the shock in avant-garde works – including learning to love them’, ‘We should preserve our shock at the sight of all these commonplace horrors as if we were preserving and protecting our very humanity. Shock is the best first response we have to inhumanity.’
