Subversive Disneyland

Larry sent me an email about a bathroom-related exhibit at a museum in Tanzania. (The exhibit is "Locus Focus" and the museum "The Museum of Old and New Art.) Ok. Seems innocent enough.

The exhibit is actually a toilet inside a row of cubicles and open to the public. A system of binoculars and mirrors enables you to get an up close and personal look at your anus while you defecate.

Now, two questions....Is this Old or New Art? and What the hell kind of a museum is this?

I found an article in "The Art Newspaper" about the museum. Here is the headline:

A “subversive Disneyland” at the end of the world: The gambling millionaire David Walsh is opening a museum in Tasmania that will be unlike anything you’ve ever seen before.

Here is a link: [WARNING: There is a graphic image in the article. Do not open at work!]
