Cleaner bins rubbish bag artwork
From the bbc website


A bag of rubbish that was part of a Tate Britain work of art has been accidentally thrown away by a cleaner. The bag filled with discarded paper and cardboard was part of a work by Gustav Metzger, said to demonstrate the "finite existence" of art.

It was thrown away by a cleaner at the London gallery, which subsequently retrieved the damaged bag.

Perhaps this wasn't custodial error; it may have been art criticism.

Perhaps the disposal of a piece of artwork said to demonstrate the "finite existence" of art itself merely reaffirms the artists' intentions -showing that "contemporary" art in its present state of being is disposable and seen as such by the general public :eek:

I had a scenic design teacher who told us that "The reason great art endures is because it's not edible."
