This week: we’re taking a tour of the Tate Modern exhibition which brings together the Swedish painter Hilma af Klint and the Dutch artist Piet Mondrian. One of the exhibition’s curators, Bryony Fer, talks to us about the two artists’ distinctive contributions to abstraction, their shared interest in esoteric belief systems, and their deep engagement with the natural world.

And the work of the week for this episode is a reconstruction of a Roman gate that has just opened at Richborough Roman Fort in Kent, southern England. Andrew J. Roberts, a property historian with English Heritage, the charity looking after the historic site, explains what the gateway tells us about the arrival of the Romans in Britain in 43 CE.
