In The Museum of Modern Art in Tokyo opened an interactive exhibition, which resembles a haunted house.
The exhibition is called «Ghosts, Underpants and Stars» – According to the organizers, these three words represent the children.
The creative team Torafu Architects , creators of the show, considered “paradoxical” to teach children the standard rules of behavior in museums. So they created a project where everything is exactly the opposite: children are allowed to run, screaming, to touch the exhibits and hands even climb on them.
Many of the exhibits have a “back door” or scenes for which the curious visitors can easily look. They can also modify the exhibited works of art: for example, through the holes you can make the Mona Lisa bulging eyes or to become the image of the painting.
An interactive exhibition allows children to paint marker mustache, try a fancy dress and much more.
“We wanted to do a haunted house as interactive as possible, – says the designer Koichi Suzun of Torafu Architects. – Children can run into the room, located behind the exhibits, and scream while in conventional museums they are not even allowed to touch the frames of paintings. ”
