Five artists re-imagine how broadcast space might be used. Front Row's John Wilson hears their works and meets the artists: Christian Marclay, Ruth Ewan, Peter Strickland, Susan Hiller and Mark Wallinger.
Radio 4's focus on arts continues with a series of five playful and surprising audio interventions, broadcast throughout the week. Radio 4 and London-based arts organisation Artangel have commissioned artists known for their singular approach to performance, sound, sculpture, installation and film-making to respond to a particular moment in the morning radio schedule and re-interpret how broadcast space might be thought about and listened to. This programme brings all five works together and hears from the artists.
