Do you think contemporary art is trash? Some cleaners in Bolzano, Italy, certainly did so. After seeing what was supposed to be an art installation at the Museion gallery, a group of cleaners thought they needed to get to work and clear up the area from all the "garbage" someone left behind. The art installation looked like the aftermath of a party room with many bottles on the floor, confetti and a hanging sign that reads "Tutti Assolti" (everyone absolved). The art piece by Milanese artists Goldschmied & Chiari was entitled as "Where are we going to dance tonight?" and the gallery described it as the perfect metaphor for the 1980's. Unfortunately for the artists, they found their installation in a garbage bag.The gallery added a sign announcing that the artwork was going to be reinstalled and it is now ready to be viewed again.
