An artist reimagines how broadcast space might be used: Christian Marclay

Radio 4's focus on arts continues with a series of five playful and surprising audio interventions, across the week after the Today programme.

The artists are: Christian Marclay (Monday), Ruth Ewan (Tuesday), Peter Strickland (Wednesday), Susan Hiller (Thursday) and Mark Wallinger (Friday). An omnibus edition of all five pieces and interviews with the artists discussing their involvement will be broadcast at 11am on Easter Saturday.
