BBC Documentary - Sensationalists: The Bad Girls and Boys of British Art
A new three-part documentary series explores the explosion of art, music and culture in the 80s that changed the landscape of modern Britain forever.
Known as the Young British Artists, these bad girls and boys of British art, along with DJs, writers and musicians, share their memories of student life and warehouse parties, of art that shocked and the mayhem that followed.
Ripping up the rule book of what art could be, they pushed the boundaries, resulting in a creative explosion that put Britain’s art and culture at the centre of the global stage.
The series coincides with the 25th anniversary of the Sensation exhibition at the Royal Academy of Art.
