Kids paradise at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo
Children visiting the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo have their hands full of work and eyes wide open in amazement. Mona Lisas's famous face is fixed by strange hands sprouting out of her hed, the head of another lady in the portrait can be freely rotated, eyes from another portrait seems lively scan the room, and you can simply enter another painting. If this is not enough, the guardian of the exibition is a nice gentelman sitting in the corner – his peculiarity – lack of head, only a hat and glasses float above the torso. Children can forget about boredom – still images stretching for miles, while parents can forget about grumble youngsters, trying to tear them from the contemplation of interesting canvas.
Japanese group of architects Torafu created 'Haunted House', a separate part of the museum. The project aimed to engage young visitors, familiarize them with the works of the great masters and 'disenchant' museum as a place of static expositions and boredom. The exhibition is interactive and surprising. Now parents will probably face a new problem: how to get their children out of there!
