The charity that owns the statue celebrating the single European currency is complaining that it spends too much on reforms, and can no longer provide anti-racist, pro-euro education in the schools it wants.
The single most popular and well-known token associated with the single euro currency, the European project and possibly the European Union itself will be auctioned after its current owners found themselves overburdened. Standing outside the European Central Bank headquarters in Frankfurt, it is 46 feet high and weighs 50 tons Euro Sculptor It has published countless news reports about the European Union since it opened in 2001 as a convenient shortcut to the bloc’s largest single project, a single European currency.
However, the statue has been vandalized repeatedly in recent years, to the point that its owner can no longer afford to keep it in a “safe condition”, Reports euronews.
The Frankfurter Kultur Komitee (FraKK) charity donated by artist Ottmar Hörl is now offering the piece for sale at an upcoming auction in October.
The report notes how FraKK’s attempt to solicit additional funding to help preserve the statue – the European Central Bank has already given €15,000, it has been said – has failed and the reforms have weakened its ability to achieve the charity’s other goals. Euronews reported:
…FraKK said funding from private sponsors was “no longer sufficient” to keep the 50-ton steel sculptures in a “safe condition.”
They also point to the increased vandalism over the past two years, which has “spent” the association’s funds, forcing it to curtail other activities aimed at tackling racism and promoting the euro in schools.
