Christo and Jeanne-Claude's public interventions have included wrapping two-and-a-half kilometres of coast and cliffs up to 26 metres high in Little Bay, Sydney, and covering the Reichstag in Berlin with 100,000 m2 of fireproof polypropylene fabric.



Christo, the man who wrapped the Reichstag, says that getting permission from the authorities to create his art is like playing poker. Here he talks us through his process and the difficulties that come with having his artistic interventions publicly debated by thousands, before they even exist.
