Twentieth-century art changed more rapidly and radically than ever before, reflecting the period's turbulent politics and accelerating technological progress. In the first half of the century, major movements such as Cubism, Surrealism, Expressionism and Dada followed in quick succession. Artists are still working through the movements' radical ideas today. Patrick Bade charts this progress to demonstrate how Tracy Emin’s My Bed evolved from a scrap of paper stuck on a canvas by Braque in 1912.
