Red Balloon 86

Museums, Childhood Free
Czech artist Hana Vojáĉková's installation about the 1986 Chernobyl disaster is comprised of five large-format photographs and a video telling the story of a ghostly boy wandering around an abandoned city in the Chernobyl exclusion zone, referencing both the disaster and Albert Lamorisse's film 'The Red Balloon'. As a link between childhood fantasy and the reality of adults, it's the kind of thoughtful subject and programming that makes the Museum of Childhood consistently relevant.
