The first museum dedicated to the work of Charlie Chaplin, has opened in the filmmaker’s former home in Vevey, Switzerland.
Originally conceived of in 2000, Chaplin’s World is the brainchild of Swiss architect Philippe Meylan and Quebec-based museographer (and lifelong Chaplin fan) Yves Durand, whose singular goal was to construct a place that would allow visitors to discover the man behind the movies. As such, the museum’s two main attractions are the Manoir and the Studio.
In the Manoir, guests are introduced to Chaplin, the family man as they learn about the Chaplins’ life in Switzerland. The home has been restaged with many of its original furnishings and personal items, including photographs and family mementos, with each room focused on a particular facet of Chaplin’s personal life. The dining room, for example, pays tribute to the family’s everyday routines and the many Hollywood celebrities who visited with them.
The interactive studio gives Chaplin fans the opportunity to step into the shoes of the noted comedian—first with a montage of clips from the more than half-century he spent writing, directing, and acting in movies, followed by access to recreated scenes and sets from his most famous films, while wax figures of Chaplin’s famous co-stars look on. Step inside the cabin from The Gold Rush in the midst of a simulated blizzard, sit in the barber’snytimes chair from The Great Dictator, or get stuck in the cogs of the newfangled machine from Modern Times—all of which make it feel like more of a theme park.

They seem simple, minimalist sculptures of figures, but the work of the Ukrainian Dinara Kasko is the result of much effort, an almost impossible balance, an absolute love for geometry and large doses of imagination and sugar.
Each of its elaborations looks like a work of modern architecture, but Dinara does not use steel or cement to build it, but meringue, cream, chocolates or gelatins pure colors.
Dinara Kasko uses 3D printers to build silicone molds with which it works. This way you can take to your imagination and draw shapes and unique structures so far unthinkable in a sweet snack.
