Colombian artist Ivan Argote on his provocative work

He’s made out with a pole on the Paris metro, graffitied a Mondrian artwork at the Center Pompidou in Paris and has a penchant for modifying historical monuments. On today’s show, we talk to Colombian artist Ivan Argote about why he uses humour in his work to explore notions of power, politics and history.

We also take a sneak peak into a Star Wars exhibition that lets you create your own character based on the sci-fi saga. And if you weren’t one of the lucky few to check out the Rolling Stones' secret rehearsal in Paris, fear not. We have a behind-the-scenes peak of the intimate performance in the French capital.
