Listen in pop-out player

Click has a special report from the Venice Biennale, a gathering of some of the finest artists in the world, many of whom have embraced the idea of digital art. Gareth Mitchell and Bill Thompson travel to Venice to hear how artists are using digital tools to make art, and how they’re illustrating the world’s technological advances through their art.

They visit the main art venues of the Biennale, the Giardini and the Arsenale and hear from an array of artists such as Gilad Ratman, representing Israel, who has a show involving a DJ and sound mixer and video as part of an art occupation of the pavilion.

There’s also a report from the exhibition of the Welsh artist, Bedwyr Williams, who has built his own observatory inside a deconsecrated church.
