THE SECRET OF THE BOX - THE GAME FOR THE EXHIBITION

FOR CHILDREN AND ADULTS AGED 6 AND OVER

A hidden original, an unexplained signature, a mini urinal, a glass vial of air from Paris, a long hair, three sealed envelopes - all this is part of the mysterious box. A game specially designed for the exhibition is waiting to be explored and solved by visitors throughout the MUSEUMMMK.

Starting with Marcel Duchamp's Boîte-en-Valise, we will get to know Rrose Sélavy and Richard Mutt together and move through the exhibition on a secret mission.
