In our first podcast Martin Bailey reports from a major conference on Nazi loot and tells us about how he himself had a hand in returning a stolen treasure. Then, our host, Ben Luke, takes us to Rachel Whiteread's new survey show at Tate Britain and speaks to the Turner Prize-winning artist about "mummifying the air" through her sculptures.
In the podcast
- The moment that the librarian at the Benevento cathedral kissed the Beneventan Missal when it was returned in 2010.
- Rachel Whiteread with a work from her 2013 show Detached at London's Gagosian Gallery.
