Making Lives

Sun 24 Feb 2013

We don't choose our parents, where we're born, our first language or our early education. We make sense of our lives as we can, and some of the most fascinating people do this through art. Alan Dodge talks with Peter Robb about painters, filmmakers, writers, criminals, and activists like Julian Assange and Marcia Langton whose lives themselves seem to take on the form of a work of art.
