UK's Turner Prize gets its first French winner

Laure Prouvost's video installation tea party is certainly eccentric enough to be British – but she definitely isn't. The 35-year-old artist from Lille has become the first ever French winner of the UK's Turner Prize, the country's most prestigious art award. We hear why she thinks her win proves there are no more barriers in art.

Also on the show, singer and actor Tcheky Karyo tells us why for him, making music is about much more than just words and music. The Turkish-born Parisian is preparing to release his second album "Credo" – which he describes as “the fruit of two years’ work, cultivated in secret by a team of emotional gardeners”.

Finally, we’re exploring Paris’s seedy underbelly through the photos of Brassaï – as a new exhibition of his snaps of 1920s and ‘30s Parisians opens its doors at the city’s Hôtel de Ville.
