M+ finally opens in Hong Kong—but is it censoring its displays?

In Hong Kong, the long-awaited M+ Museum opens this week, amid accusations of censorship by the Chinese artist Ai Weiwei. Ilaria Maria Sala joins us to tell us about her visit to the museum. The Courtauld Gallery, one of London’s great collections, is re-opening after a three-year renovation, and we take a tour of the gallery with its director Ernst Vegelin van Claerbergen. He picks out some of the key works: Robert Campin, The Entombment, known as  ‘The Seilern Triptych’ (around  1425) © The CourtauldSando Botticelli, The Holy Trinity with Saints Mary Magdalen and John the Baptist (around 1491-94) © The Courtauld.
