This fresh, fascinating three-part series explores the story of 20th-century culture and the pivotal moments that influenced it. The story of culture is often cast as a gradual evolution, but for James Fox, art and culture in the 20th century didn't happen like that. It was not a considered and calmly executed process, but a series of cultural earthquakes centered in particular cities at particular times. Each episode appraises the impact of events in one city during one groundbreaking year: Vienna in 1908, Paris in 1928, and New York in 1951. A BBC Production.
