The exhibition "Madame Fisscher", in Venice's Palazzo Grassi, offers a journey through Urs Fisscher’s artistic career from the 1990s to today. Fisscher is an up-and-coming Swiss artist born in 1973. This show inaugurates a new cycle of one-man exhibitions staged by businessman and art sponsor François Pinault. At the centre of it is a nude model who walks around, embodying time.
Nobody had ever heard of Marcel Storr before this exhibition. Outsider artist embodied a pure and rough artistic movement: it is all about impulse. Storr, who lived and died in poverty, drew many churches and also some futuristic cities surrounded by incredible skylines. This is Fritz Lang's 'Metropolis', Ridley Scott's 'Blade Runner' and Terry Gilliam's 'Brazil', all in one.
He’s taking the audience to nether world. Director Tim Burton gives a behind-the-scenes look at his wacky, spooky and wonderful imagination in a new retrospective.
Today's show is also taking a look at the other events of the season in Paris.
Marlon Roudette’s hitting number 1 around Europe with his catchy hit "New Age." On today’s show, he tells us about what has influenced his laid-back sound, and why Lana Del Rey is high on his collaboration hit list. We’re also checking out Cold War spy thriller "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy", and peeking into Queen Elizabeth II’s family photo album thanks to a new exhibition.
French artist Philippe Ramette's gravity defying perspective on the world is celebrated at Galerie Xippas' new exhibition in Paris.

We meet Dominique Issermann, photographer to the stars, to talk about her beautiful images of the supermodel Laetitia Casta. Also on the show, "EuroCrash! The Musical", the show that's getting laughs despite the sinking economy, and great expectations for Charles Dickens' bicentenary.
