Modern Art made understandable
2 July 2006 | by paradisetraderSee all my reviews

Are Modern artists just a bunch of lazy, self serving con merchants ? Or are they genuinely trying to make us see the world around us in new ways ? If you are perplexed, baffled and offended by the outrageousness of modern art then this is for you. This program is for ordinary people who would like to understand what all the fuss is about.

Matthew Collings fresh, straight-talking review will pull away the many veils before your eyes and will just as happily say how modern art fails in it's aims as well as hits it's target. While challenging, Matthew's easy style will be totally understandable.

This short series of documentary programmes, along with his book of the same title are highly recommended. I want to watch it again myself !
