An Instagram-Baiting Museum in Indonesia Is Ripping Off Chris Burden and Yayoi Kusama
Rabbit Town, a new art-filled selfie attraction to be officially opened in April in Bandung, Indonesia, has allegedly plagiarised popular art and infringed intellectual property in the name of selfies.
Move over miniature cities, this is the theme park of our time, and it plays right into this generation’s obsession of photo taking and sharing.
“Rabbit Town has grown ever more notorious for their blatant disregard of artist’s intellectual property,” a representative for the Museum of Ice Cream told artnet News in an email, noting that Instagram had previously shut down an initial Rabbit House account at their urging. “Instagram’s legal department has already been notified about this attempt to circumvent our efforts and we anticipate it being shut down very soon.”
