The art of government


The first exhibition of the government's extensive art collection, used mostly for offices and embassies, will be opened to the public today.

Daniel Herrmann, curator of the collection at the Whitechapel Gallery in East London, and Kim Howells, former culture minister in the last government, talk about why the collection is "desperately needed."
