The Guardian SEPTEMBER 8, 2010 - by Brian Eno & others
LETTERS: A TOUCH OF CLASS
We are very concerned to hear that Tate Modern will host a party for Tony Blair today, September 8, at which he will promote his memoirs. Tate Modern is a public building with a deserved reputation for being one of the most important cultural institutions in the world, exhibiting work of the highest artistic quality. Mr Blair is widely held to be incriminated in war crimes and a majority of the British public believe he lied to parliament to take Britain into the illegal Iraq war. It is disgraceful that the Tate is being used for this purpose and we urge the gallery, even at this late stage, to reconsider its decision to host this event.
