"Of protests of the Guggenheim museum in New York back in February during an exhibition by the photographer NAN Goldin, the four hundred thousand shouting about the estimated number thought to have died in the US after becoming addicted to prescription drug Oxycontin, Oxycontin was produced by perje farmer, and that firm allegedly linked to the very wealthy Sackler trust, which sponsors the Guggenheim museum. Then gilding herself as it happens is a former Oxycontin added well, the sector trust to Nuys any direct connection to the drug, but the protests have had an effect. The Guggenheim says it now no longer is taking Sackler donations, nor in fact is the Tate Gallery in London, the British art critic and broadcaster serotonin United has been reflecting for the BBC on how this scandal has fed into a well established history of cash and corruption in the arts Is everywhere in the world the Vienna. The seventeen National Gallery non golden has south announced that she would withdraw from a planned retrospective of her work at the national portrait gallery, unless it refused million pound donation on offer from the family. The Sackler donation was indeed dropped it remains to be seen. How many other institutions might follow? The has also been a demonstration at the British Museum last month. Protesters' invaded the central hall. The opening of an exhibition on a Syrian culture cooling out its main sponsor BP for what they claimed was it involvement in the carving up of the Iraqi oil industry after the two thousand and three war. It's environmental record. And it's rolling climate change. The thorny relationship between culture and the money that supports it is not new think of the battle of tobacco sponsorship in sport. Those old days of billboards plummeted with cigarette. Brands around Formula one race tracks and football stadiums alone gone, but it took time pressure and government action to bring it about politics as ever is in bedded in all of this. The only way galleries and museums can bring in extra revenue these days is to mount superstar editions which pulling punches and raise profile such blockbusters Costa fortune crowdfunding ballot of art lovers wouldn't come close. But that Honey to the sponsorship wing of many big companies ways to soften what could be a problematic corporate image that could be p. Oil may have been literally the fuel which we built minority, but that's sticky. Crude river has never quite lost its rotten eggs smell as we walk through diesel fog into the horrors of climate change. It isn't going to get any cleaner and yet and yet a whole shoe American museums charitable foundations. Art galleries were all built on oil fortunes behind Getty Carnegie Rockefeller, mining smelting. Henry Ford's carved in on water. How far back? Do we go? No, one would defend pudgy farmer's actions over Oxycontin. But the Sackler family have been giving to the art world long before this scandal one of its biggest donors office chocolate died over thirty years ago should his name come off the boards. Should we give back the money as well? Fisheries? The Catholic church was the only global multinational in town. Was one of its central tools of propaganda advertising. You might call it and selling salvation was license to print money. All this is soaked into the fifteen chapel decorated by Michael Angelo, pope Sixers fourth after whom it is named Ron one of the most nepotistic papacy of the age. The building was financed by new taxes. The brainchild beset and cardinal Borgia and MichelAngelo's work with commissioned by two popes. Neither of whom let their valid fella Bassy get in the way of carnal pleasures. There's no doubt that without all of this lamb into corruption. We would not have many of the greatest works of the world has ever seen when faced with a loss. Judgment. My instinct is to listen to history the wonder of God's sparking life into Adam on that sublime ceiling can never be separated. From the fact that man lives on earth. Decidedly monkey down. Here. Always was. And I fear always will be Saraji. And you're listening to business daily from the BBC World Service with me at Butler. So there's some context what I wonder to super-rich philanthropists these days. Make of all of this debate Sarah mentioned donations from companies and individuals constitute an ever larger slice of funding used by arts institutions, but it's not necessarily always their purest generosity. That's behind it. Critics argue the firms and individuals get something in return using their gifts to burnish an otherwise tainted reputation oil companies drugs companies, for example, some of the largest charitable folios whilst enjoying some of the lowest public approval ratings as firms so what's going on. I ask James Chen. He's a Hong Kong businessman, and billionaire who now deploys a big slice of his wealth. Not in arts funding as it happens, but develop developing world charity, clearly which promotes better eyesight for. The poor most people practice what I would call patronage philanthropy, which is very much about being very generous with their checkbooks giving money, but really not understanding deeply about issues rather than the type of philanthropy that people like Bill Gates or myself trying to do which I would categorize a something different which is specifically development for Paul world, which is really focusing on on issues that affect either the society, we live in or the or the larger world, those who are marginalized, you know, and how to tackle those issues. Right. And I think the key there is to -bility to take risk in your philanthropy and able take risks right? You really have to develop this deep understanding right off the issues failing learning from failure. You know, that's a very different type of philanthropy than patronage that most people are practicing really change it. Chain move the dial right people talk about the phrase that some of us is something called moral licensing, which is basically they can do what they like him business specifically how you made your money, but they've done whatever they wanted in business, and then they are giving themselves sanction reputation reputational sanctioning by simply throwing a school. Subset of that money towards a good cause. Yes. That may or may not be the case. But I think there's an expectation in society that those who have done well, give back more taxes or by doing something that helps deeply to change society for the better. And so I think that unless the wealthy really get that and get behind that those who have more we can really do more do more. I mean, you're a Hong Kong businessman, you presumably a surrounded by many of those around you who you are involved in charitable activity, but some of them, I guess Joe look pretty cut throat today. They involve themselves perhaps in the types of business, not morally exactly transparent. Do you think any of them are involved in in giving money away in order to somehow cleanse reputations? I'm sure that that that would happen. But you know, there is one black and white line is around what's legal, and what's not legal, right. And then there is the issue of morality and that gets a little bit of morally ambiguous. And we do see this a lot in between China would say, you know, where people are using charitable giving as a way to buy insurance in a way. I really when they get into trouble. They can show you this happened historically happens. But if we can differentiate that kind of giving, right? It's fairly easy to see that. Right. What are you actually utilizing your philanthropy Ford? What kind of impact are you really achieving? Right. That's I think a deeper don't tar the whole sector of philanthropy there. Lots of wonderful people who deeply deeply care and really want to do something meaningful. Right. But unfortunately, they're often drowned out by the media others would kind of focus on the number of zeros rather than on. What is being accomplished the Hong Kong billionaire and philanthropist, James Chen? But let's get back to the arts then with which with liberal profile has for decades become a focus for activism, these days the protests when they're not about opioids targeting oil companies firms like BP, for example, which sponsors several of the UK's leading cultural institutions the British Museum national portrait gallery, Royal Shakespeare Company. And so on campaign has like just worth of the UK pressure group culture unstained say that his problem in the area of climate change. She reckons big oil should be exiled from the arts. But Claire FOX director of the UK's academy of odd is sit RAV differently. I put them together to debate this subject Jessica's, I coach will organize Asians doing when they choose to partner with BP or shell or whoever they are actually promoting the ongoing use of these fulfills at the moment when we really really need to be going in opposite direction Edinburgh. Science festival which has long been sponsored by variety of oil companies actually announced that it's dropped his soil says it's committing for no longer taking any fulfill many and its justification is and I quote with climate change over presence, and we feel increasingly compromised by the conflict between accepting sponsorship from fulfill companies programming events this tonight's the main causes of climate change. So this this increasing challenge to institution's legitimacy if the scene to be too close to or promoting oil companies in this way, folks, what do you think of that? I think that largely autistic organisation should take money from wherever they want from whoever they want as long as identifier in autistic freedom. What I think I'm most concerned about I understand that Justice activists on fossil fuels, and that's fine. But you could be having a conversation with an activist against big pharma or the recent Sackler controversy, which was in relation to in fact, whether they. They should be sponsoring the Tate because of that legislation with the legislation without code crisis. Exactly, I suppose my question is what is clean money, and who gets to decide should it be a group of activists who've kind of lobbied shamed. Organizations into not taking the money. Not in the end denies the public. Great way of just why are you setting a high of bar or your pay to be for cultural organisations than perhaps other parts of UK society? I think cultural organizations are sort of unique -ly trusted by the public play really important role as classes not just in sort of giving us access to one of the world, but will say in education in reflecting the big shifts going on in the world, and helping people engage with and understand them. So they really need to maintain public trust. Yes. So we're gonna do need money. But they also need to protect themselves from risks to their reputation, and that means doing what actually so we're gonna have already been doing for longtime which is having a robust ethical funding policy. That says, okay, where are red lines over the last maybe ten twenty years within three concerted shift away from tobacco sponsorship? They've increasingly been seen as inappropriate partners. I think the same can be said for the arms industry. So there's already red lines. I think what we're arguing is that the scale in urgency of the climate crisis. Now should also be beyond that red line. You talk about risks to reputation, but the risk to reputation actually don't come from that sponsorship that come from people who opposed that sponsorship light, you now people, for example in the public health world will say that Suga, for example is the new tobacco. So where do you stop any organization that wishes to sponsor the ours or a science festival or what? Have you as long as they don't interfere in the editor the artistic integrity of that oak. Nisaan don't pose a challenge to the reputation of arts organization just as there any evidence of these companies interfering with. Yes. There is actually, and I should say mention that a few years ago shells, bumps it, the science museums exhibition on climate change could atmosphere and more recently came to light that they actually watered down some of the language around pollution say that is direct interference in stick integrity. The British Museum BP is allowed to pick and choose which exhibitions it sponsors strings attached. I've already made the point that I don't think that's appropriate. But these are not evil organizations. You have a particular political problem with them without fossil fuels regardless of the row about it. You couldn't turn the lights on. We couldn't actually do this very interview. What you're saying is their reputation is enhanced by being associated with the ours. Why shouldn't it be because that giving money who you to decide whether they are morally pure enough or criteria that can actually. Decide whether that good enough to give money. Well, this isn't just coming from me that Edinburgh science festival of ready mentioned has dropped all of its fossil fuels says as Tate as has the international festival in terms of the science museum, which is currently sponsored by three oil companies recently forty-eight, incredibly well respected. Scientists put a formal complaint into the science museum arguing that its promotion of those three companies conflicts with scientific integrity. This is shift is happening across the whole sector. Sorry. That's very compelling with me. Would you have it that every arts institution and science festival would now say not take money from another big corporate big pharma big alcohol. I mean, where do you draw the line? That's my question. Really all the ready corporates that you think they should take money from big banks. They okay, I think the arts one of the great riches that we gain from having excess money made from prophets and. Even the state gets its money that it pays to also can is Asians from taxes that come from not only all of us, but guess what? Big corporations. Yes. Increasingly we're gonna is Asians and needing to look to the private sector in order to find that funding. But to me that makes it even more important that they have a strong, ethical fundraising policy. So that they don't find themselves being compromised by association with companies responsible for serious crises lightly climate crisis lightly opioid crisis. There you go. What do you think just worth of the pressure group culture? I'm staying before her Claire FOX the kademi of ideas on the row over art sponsorship. That's eight for today's business.

Well, this week Purdue pharma and the Sackler agreed to pay two hundred seventy million dollars to settle that case in Oklahoma. But the move is unusual. Wall. But you know, that settlement in Oklahoma may open the floodgates for states over the past several weeks a number of cultural institutions, including the Guggenheim in the Tate Gallery in London have sought to separate themselves from Sackler from the Sackler as they are one of the largest contributors to the arts in this country. But it's clear that the name is now persona non grata at least in the social circles that they participate in and it seems like. You know that the people who receive a lot of money from them are trying to distance themselves from this crisis diamond. Thank you so much WCBS news time.

"Few updates for you now on some stories. We've been tracking lately on the world last week. We told you about the national portrait gallery and the Tate gallery's in the UK. Both said they were done with money from the Sackler family, the Sackler zone Purdue pharma, which makes Oxycontin and critics say that side of the Sackler family is largely responsible for the opioid crisis. Well on Friday evening, the Guggenheim museum in New York City said it was following the lead of his British museums and announced it would also turn down philanthropic gifts from the Sackler family. We also reported recently about a bad sign for the road to peace on the Korean peninsula. The inter-korean liaison office was supposed to be a place for increasing dialogue between north and South Koreans the opposites close to the border between the two countries but last week Pyongyang abruptly recalled their North Korean staff from the office suggesting a backslide in negotiations. Then today the North Korean staff returned in the morning to the office as usual. It's weird. But at least they're still dialogue and in southern Africa more than a million and a half, people are reeling from cyclone. Isci.

"And this is the world good to have you here. This friday. The name Sackler makes a lot of people angry these days, the Sackler is are the family that's made billions from sales of the painkiller Oxycontin. The drug is a chief villain in the opioid epidemic. But the Sackler is are also major philanthropists who've given generously to institutions all around the globe. Those institutions are now under intense pressure to reject the family's money now to have both in Britain the national portrait gallery in London and the Tate gallery's Benjamin sauce. Cas focuses on philanthropy at the urban institute in Washington. So how big of a deal are these announcements by the state and national portrait gallery in London. Ben, I think they're a pretty big deal for all the controversy that surrounded the Sackler family of less. Couple of years. There hasn't been a single cultural or educational institution. At least that I'm aware of that has explicitly said they were going to not accept anymore Sackler money and puts a lot of pressure on other institutions to make similar decisions. Yeah. And there's been tons of pressure on American cultural institutions and universities to cut ties with the Sackler. Why do you think it was European institutions who came to this decision? I there's two possible explanations. One is the nature of decision making in these cultural institutions there which is slightly different than in American context. Perhaps the deeper question is whether or not American institutions all feel like they're in competition for Sackler money. Anyone who ops out is putting themselves at a major disadvantage and the pursuit of. Of of high sums in these institutions is fierce. And so I think there is a general reluctance not to be the first. Now, whoever the pressure really is on. So let's get down to the brass tacks. Just how important are the Sackler as philanthropies. They are one of the major philanthropic families of the late twentieth and early twenty first century with a real global reach. They have a major presence in British institutions, but they've also funded the Liuw Peking university. They funded a Jewish museum in Germany, their reach extends extremely far and in the US they have funded hundreds of millions of dollars through some of the major major research institutions in the country. Yeah. The other thing is that the Sackler family is vast how big and sprawling is his family. Well, so there were three patriarchs that took a small pharmaceutical company that was known generally for making laxatives and transformed it into a pharmaceutical giant in part through Oxycontin, one of them. Them died before the advent of Oxycontin, Arthur Sackler that leaves two patriarchs Richard and Mortimore, and they were the ones who help build the company through Oxycontin. So when you see the Sackler name on a museums wall. You can't automatically assume that the money came from the sale of this problematic opioid, and that's one reason why say the Metropolitan Museum in New York, has emphasized the fact that the money they received was from Arthur who did not have his hand in contin. I mean, some critics would say that the philanthropic side of the sack with family, basically, allow them to continue profiting from killer drug while garnering goodwill and cover through museums and galleries, do you think that's fair? It's unclear to me the extent to which their philanthropic profile, shielded them from public scrutiny. I think they just had very good lawyers. And to some extent we're able to hide behind the kind of corporation itself if they really wanted to avoid scrutiny they could have had a much lower. Profile both philanthropic. And otherwise, the problem is they wanted it both ways they wanted to avoid any type of acknowledgement of their role in Purdue pharma, but they wanted to have a major public profile as philanthropists, and I think what's happened is that contradiction just became too severe. And it sort of fell apart Benjamin us with the urban institute in Washington where he focuses on philanthropy. Thanks very much for talking about the sacrifice. My pleasure. Last year the national portrait gallery in London put together an exhibit called Michael Jackson on the wall. It looks at the late pop singer as a cultural phenomenon the exhibit has since been shown in Paris. And it was getting ready to open in Germany when HBO air this. He was one.

"Do you miss those? I mean is it like when we were growing up? It seems like you could just be on one show, and then all the sudden boom career made. And now it just feels like you're just chasing audiences into the four core. The fifty corners of the internet to to reach people would you've would you? If are you glad that you're a performer in this era. Or is there another era that you think like really glad that I am managed to capitalize on my space. When in that, I'm just very happy. I started when I did and it took off from that. Because I think I got like the golden age of right of of will. And by the time, my space was done you had your audience, but that point. But I just I think about those days when it's like you can make one television appearance in the seventies. Because seventy percent of the country was watching one thing. It's like you appear on one thing. And then all the sudden, you know, but it's interesting though, because this is the thing like with with data and stuff is that, you know, previously. Before you could put you'll meet a couple to see how many plays something has somebody important my come to concert and Seaney play and MB like I was really affected by that performance.

Like troth tro farms, but the office it boosting things right because I don't. Where we all politically at the moment, whereas the clash and the Sex Pistols, and was this whereas the resistance like it's not there, and I find that really really bizarre considering where we are. I wonder if it's just that there are two because that's that's a that's a really interesting point. And I think about that a lot with comedy as well where it's like where the massive comedy when I was growing up. There was like a comedy. And I think it's I honestly think the great thing that the internet has done has given everyone a platform to get out there. Whatever their art is the downside of that. Is there so much noise? And also everyone can go down such very specific rabbit holes that they're not actually coming. It's like there are large groups of people like it's sort of the Nisha firing of our culture. So it's like, you know, this this band that in nineteen eighty two might have had a shit on more followers. Now, they. Have a solid ten thousand followers, and this other one has twelve thousand followers, and this one has forty thousand. But there, but everyone is getting there they're very specific tastes met. So that they're not all kind of coming together. There's just there's not from Trump go in right because they fucked with Facebook and shit.

"The forget about colors by Peter Blake and John Howarth the during the cover sergeant pepper Hamilton's response was to do a blank white cover. But there's a lot more to it than that later. I'll be speaking to the right of Harriet Viner about Robert Fraser, the art dealer who linked the art and music world in the sixties. But I I went to take Britain. To to to Andrew Wilson senior curator of Martin and contemporary art at the Tate and also the author of an essay in the new super deluxe edition of the white album. We spoke about Hamilton and how he approached this momentus task. Andrew I of who was Richard Hamilton, Richard hamsters, probably one of most significant parties in this country time in the in the sixties. But actually, he was the papa's. Didn't he define Papa? Sense. He did. Through through his work with the independent roof at the institute of contemporary arts London in the early fifties. Mid fifties, defines applause. As something popular in federal. But he didn't really define. He defined popular culture as a subject Messer for for for autists for nonsense work very much at the time. When subject matter was quite cool sense of fine, aunt, popular culture. But Blake ocher being quite derided and marginalizing note by autism object the every day, and he some of his contemporaries to convey, very different view, and it was very much about thinking about culture in using say, the tone, the critic Lawrence Alloway coins Vallone fronts of couch, and so everything existed on a continuum find out and will less popular culture, and the everyday all on the same level, and you wouldn't. Apply. A sense of aesthetic judgments to any of these. Categories along that continuum you'd rather appliance with critical judgments, it was about what things meant, and what they did rather than in the sense how they made you feel. This stage is well there's a really crucial connection with this emerging phenomenon which is conceptual. I mean, two years earlier Hamilton it reconstructed do shows large glass for an exhibition here in this building the Tate Gallery seems to me fairly crucial thing that conceptual. Lot was becoming very very significant development in. I mean, it is nothing conceptual often quite misunderstood that somehow being apart from ours. And actually conceptual was about making that connection with the every day that ought to closeness to life. And that closeness was something again that needed to be critically examined and do show was really key figure in all of that. Because in a sense his nomination of sessional Jake's as ready made. Is about engaging with the every day in a way, you know, in engaging with the unaesthetic as well. It was really really important which brings us very neatly onto a very anesthetic album cover or is it the white album. Can you can tell me what Hamilton's idea was for this record? I think in in the sense of ways that the store is often told it's it's. It's a design concept almost born ounce of fair the previous album for the Beatles. Nineteen sixty seven such Pat. Has an ovum covering the design concept was formed very much by Peter Blake and John house, and for many people to find the Beatles in in a maybe retro nostalgic kind of aim but very much of that period. Nineteen sixty seven some review of and this was the album and the album cover that defined. And so when the company first approached Richard Hamilton's, do this. I think his first response was I called talk. What what Peter and John have done in a it's it's like it's beyond fast com woke tonight, and then thinking well due to complete minimum do the complete opposite. But apparently the complete minimum. And let's do something really outrageous, which is to. Covered the album provide a jacket for the album, which should just white.
