    Sir Anish Kapoor's new exhibition

    Our special correspondent Jim Naughtie has been talking to Sir Anish Kapoor about his new exhibition at the newly restored Pitzhanger Manor & Gallery, and how current world affairs are influencing his art. He says he's helping to fund a campaign to restore Shamima Begum's UK citizenship and says if she's committed crimes, she should be tried in the UK. We asked the Home Office to respond to Kapoor's criticism and they referred us to a statement saying: “We do not comment on individual cases, but any decisions to deprive individuals of their citizenship are based on all available evidence and not taken lightly.” (Image: Sir Anish Kapoor, credit: BBC)
