Going Local

Ziezo Marokko

Tropenmuseum Junior, Amsterdam (NL)

In the new interactive exhibition ‘ZieZo Marokko’ children are taken on a journey of discovery through Morocco. The space is theatrically laid out like a Moroccan medina, a white city with a labyrinth of alleys and passageways, squares and vistas. By way of optical illusions using backdrops and light the visitor enters a seemingly endless world. Stories are told using real objects from both the museum collections and Morocco, and four well-known Dutch Moroccans recount their personal experiences in special guest rooms, which they have decorated themselves. This is the starting point for an interactive search through the medina, through which Morocco’s diversity is highlighted.

Learn More About Morocco

Children will be able to cook in a fragrant Moroccan kitchen, create puzzles with tile patterns in a colourful riad, or take a wild ride in a bus through Moroccan landscapes and cities. Using a mixture of audio-visual and interactive media and the design of a sculptural environment full of stories and objects, Kossmanndejong has created an immersive experience.
‘ZieZo Marokko’, which means ‘you can see Morocco like this, you can see Morocco like that – how do you see Morocco?
