Magazine arts show. Journalist Lynn Barber takes over editorial control and indulges her passion for American pop culture, meeting John Waters and Doug Aitken.

Journalist Lynn Barber takes over editorial control of the new arts series, and indulges her passion for American pop culture.

She meets trash icon John Waters - a film director, comedian and satirist who has been called, to his great satisfaction, the 'Pope of Trash'. His new show features pubic crabs, a magazine promising nude photos of WH Auden and Lassie with a facelift.

Lynn also enters the unpredictable world of the American multimedia artist Doug Aitken. In summer 2015, he takes over London's Barbican to create a modern-day version of a 60s 'happening', involving big name artists like Jeremy Deller and Martin Creed. What will Lynn make of it all?
