Hot on the foot of Donald Trump’s first 100 days in office, Alastair Sooke travels to America for one off documentary Trump And Culture: Brave New World? to ask just what the new President’s impact on America’s cultural landscape is going to be.
Meeting major figures from the worlds of music, literature, journalism, film and television, as well as a range of visual artists who love and loathe Trump in equal measure, Alastair finds out what the implications of his plans to eliminate all federal funding for culture are.
Featuring interviews with writers such as Paul Auster, Lionel Shriver and Howard Jacobson, as well as representatives from Pussy Riot, the New York Times and Buzzfeed, it promises to cast new light on this most contentious of presidencies.
Trump And Culture: Brave New World? airs on Saturday 6 May 2017 from 7.20pm-8.00pm on BBC Two.
