Soundings with the artist Robert Rauschenberg

Sunday 1 June 2008 22:00-22:45 (Radio 3)

In a rare interview recorded in 1998, the artist Robert Rauschenberg who died last month at the age of 82, talks to Tim Marlow about his innovative career in which he created some of the icons of post-war American art. Rising to fame in New York in the 1950s, he was close friends with other important figures of modernism like musician John Cage and painter Willem de Kooning.

Rauschenberg's collaborators, including the choreographer Merce Cunningham, explain how he managed to blaze a trail for the contemporary desire to blur the boundaries between different art forms.
