    [双语新闻]错把雕塑当垃圾 局长赔偿清洁工补课
      Back to School for Binmen
    摘要:
        对德国法兰克福的清洁工来说,街头上那些黄色塑料板只是一大堆垃圾而已,他们应该克尽职守地把它们铲走、压碎并且焚烧干净。但是,他们并不知道,被他们认真清理掉的“垃圾”却是法兰克福市艺术学会目前正在展出的重要雕塑作品。而责令清洁工处理这些垃圾的正是该市卫生局局长。
        To the dustmen of Frankfurt, they were a mess that needed to be cleared from the streets of their spotless city. The yellow plastic sheets were swiftly scooped up, crushed and burned.But the diligence of the rubbish collectors was little consolation to the city's prestigious art academy, which is now ruing the loss of an important work.

        对德国法兰克福的清洁工来说,街头上那些黄色塑料板只是一大堆垃圾而已,他们应该克尽职守地把它们铲走、压碎并且焚烧干净。但是,他们并不知道,被他们认真清理掉的“垃圾”却是法兰克福市艺术学会目前正在展出的重要雕塑作品。而责令清洁工处理这些垃圾的正是该市卫生局局长。

        据英国《卫报》1月13日报道,在法兰克福街头展出的这些雕塑作品,是该市艺术学会为圣德尔艺术学校研究生迈克尔·比特尔举办的现代雕塑展作品的一部分。

        法兰克福卫生局局长彼得·波斯特莱博表示,他对此次损坏艺术品的事件负有全责。他说:“那天我开车路过,看见了这些雕塑作品。当时正在下雨,坏天气使这些东西看起来很像一堆垃圾。我以为建筑工人把它们倾倒在了街头,所以我立刻通知清洁工去把它们清理干净。我万万没有想到,它们却是艺术品。那里也没有任何标志表明它们是正在展出的雕塑作品。”

        几天后,当波斯特莱博在报纸上得知有关这次雕塑展览的消息时,他才意识到自己犯了个大错。他立即打电话到垃圾处理站,可是那堆塑料板已经被焚烧干净了。

        本次雕塑作品展原定于在本周末结束。目前,波斯特莱博已对被毁掉的9件雕塑品作出了私人赔偿。

        报道说,法兰克福卫生局的30名清洁工将从本周末开始进行每月一次的现代艺术课程学习。这个名为“检查你的艺术鉴赏力”的课程将于16日正式开课。法兰克福市政当局希望今后不要再发生把艺术品当垃圾的事情。(蒋黎黎)

        To the dustmen of Frankfurt, they were a mess that needed to be cleared from the streets of their spotless city. The yellow plastic sheets were swiftly scooped up, crushed and burned.

        But the diligence of the rubbish collectors was little consolation to the city's prestigious art academy, which is now ruing the loss of an important work.

        Unknown to the binmen, the sheets were part of a city-wide exhibition of modern sculpture by Michael Beutler, a graduate of Frankfurt's St?del art school.

        Thirty of the dustmen are now being sent to modern art classes to try to ensure that the same mistake never happens again.

        The head of Frankfurt's sanitation department, Peter Postleb, took responsibility for the destruction of the sculpture, saying that confusing the plastic sheets with rubbish was an easy mistake to make. He thought they were abandoned building materials.

        Mr Postleb said he noticed the pile as he was driving through the city. It was raining, which didn't make things any easier, he said. "As the weather was bad I thought it was construction workers who had dumped their materials on the street and called my people to come and take it away," he said.

        "I didn't recognise it as art and there was no sign or anything to show it was art."

        He only realised his mistake a few days later when he read about the exhibition in a local paper. "I instantly called the depot, but they told me that it had already been thrown into the incinerator," he said.

        The exhibition is due to finish at the end of the week and Mr Postleb has offered to clear away the other nine sculptures at his own expense.

        The monthly "Check Your Art Sense" lessons, which start on Sunday, will involve the dustmen being shown two pictures: one from the museum's permanent exhibition and another lesser-known work from the archive. Then they will be asked to discuss the differences between them.
