Grayson Perry’s Big American Road Trip – 7 October 2020 – 7/10/2020 – Wednesday – Channel 4

As America heads for a presidential election, how can its growing divisions be overcome? In this very personal three-part documentary travelogue, award-winning artist and social commentator Grayson Perry is going to travel across the US, to explore the meaning of the American Dream today. At a time when the nation can sometimes seem more divided than ever, he will spend time with people from very different walks of life, to try to understand how Americans today view issues of identity, race, money and class.

This episode, Grayson goes through the swing state of Wisconsin in the American Midwest – a predominantly white and predominantly rural location, which gave President Trump his victory in 2016. He finds a state that is increasingly bitterly divided over identity politics and cultural issues like abortion and vaccination. Why are these ‘culture wars’ happening, asks Grayson, and what might help to overcome the divisions? Finally, Grayson makes a map of the American culture wars, one which has strong implications for our own cultural and political divisions in the UK
