Gaffe can cost Anchor statue life

When the statue of the late prime minister Anker Jørgensen in October, was set up in the copenhagen town Harbour, it was without the necessary permission.

It confirms the Technique and Environment committee in the Municipality of Copenhagen is now over for Extra Magazine.

The lack of permission makes, that it is now likely that the statue be removed as they fade down again.

- There has not been retrieved, the appropriate permission from the municipality before they put such a sculpture up. It can perhaps be rescued at the finish line, but if it does not have to be approved, it must of course be taken down again. You put nothing up on the municipal grounds, without asking about it, says Jens Peter Munk, there are sciences responsible for the Nature of the technical and environmental administration in Copenhagen Municipality.

Management discovered the error by accident, when an employee of the technical and environmental administration, a few days before the unveiling of the statue, walked past the Anker Jørgensen's Space, and discovered that they were about to put something up.

Jens Peter Munk then went the matter and found that there was retrieved a permission, and so had the organizers scrambling to send the right application. The magnificent unveiling of the statue, however, was allowed to be held.

- They have subsequently sent an application in, and the finisher we so political, " says Jens Peter Munk.

A response on the application is expected to be ready during the spring. Until then, stands the statue without the permission of the Harbour.

In the delayed application for permanent location of the statue mentions the people behind the project, has been given temporary permission from the Technique and Miljøforvaltningens director, Søren Wille, but according to the management is that never been given such a.

- I do not know where the wording comes from. They have been allowed to hold their event, but it still needs to be addressed politically.

the Statue stands on the premise that if the committee says no, then it's down with it again, says pressekonsulent in Engineering and environmental management, Andreas Hein.

the prime mover on the statue project is the socialist councillor Susan Hedlund, who has spent the last two years to get a statue of fellow party member Jørgensen in place.

She had allegedly believed that the statue's placement on the stairs in front of the Kvarterhuset, where she is the leader, in Anker Jørgensen's Place was a private placement. Therefore, she sought only the permission of the housing association BAC, who owns the house.

the Rules proved to be different, and now it may ultimately cost Anker Jørgensen its place at Anker Jørgensen's Place.

- We were convinced that we had sought the proper permission, we have never wanted that there should be no problems with the statue, says Susan Hedlund.

If the finishing of the permanent authorisation ends with, that the statue be removed, you have not yet an alternate location ready.

- It is not yet discussed, what shall be done. But it would good enough be embarrassing, says Susan Hedlund.

The 600,000 men, as the statue has cost, is among other things, raised via private fundraising, however the majority are paid by the professional organizations.

Portrayal of the former prime minister is created by the local sculptor Nanna Brøndum. The statue depicts a seated Anker Jørgensen, who is sitting with a stick and reaches out his hand. Usually when a statue should be set up, that goes a long artistic process, ahead of the genesis.

In the city of Copenhagen is the the Council of Visual Art, which stands for the selection and procurement of art. The committee consists of artists, museumsledere and elected politicians. In a consultation response from the council the process and the lack of authorisation referred to as the 'uhensigtmæssigt' and 'deeply problematic'. In the same response informs the council that it would be better had seen, to the portrayal of Anker Jørgensen had been different.

'the Council would have preferred an artistic monument of its time, in the same way as Anker Jørgensen, was a politician of his time. Anker Jørgensen was in many ways an unconventional political leader, who could have earned a more unconventional artistic depiction. Therefore, the Council will recommend that this kind of monuments going forward should be established solely with the applicable permits and a prior art process in order to ensure the artistic quality.', sounds in the hearing.

it will be important for to the statue's continued placement at Anker Jørgensen's Space must eventually show.

- If the statue should be removed, where do you think then, that it must be?

- I think it would be shame if it was removed, because it fits well here. I hope that they get permission to let it be here. It's called the Anker Jørgensen's Place.

- What do you think about the statue?

- I think that it is the character of the Harbour, because the Anchor has been a bundle of energy out there through the very many years. He was very with in the city, and talked a lot with people. He could sit there (on the stairs where the statue is placed red.) and drink a cold bajer.

- What do you think about that the statue is put up without permission?

- It is totally out of the hemp, you will spend 10,000 dollars on one or another no matter the project, and so you stand here and will remove anything where there is a permit.

The people sitting on the town Hall is the not particularly gifted. The approaching amøbestadiet gradually. It is grotesque with all the rules and initiatives, and the dut and the dat. Looking at the whole picture, and what people would like to have. We would like to have him, for he is characterized by the south Harbour. I will not have any of their fancy crap. Him that (the Anchor statue red.), it is the art!

- If the statue should be removed, where do you think then, that it must be?

- He can not stand in a different place, Anker Jørgensen's Space in front of the Kvartershuset is the right place.
