A man with black mask covering his face and a white stick for blind people in his hand entered Moderna galerija - Slovene Museum of Contemporary Art - in Ljubljana. Being handicapped (blind) he didn't have to pay for the entrance ticket. For a while he was enjoying the exhibition as a blind person would. At certain moment he folded the white stick and started to look at the exhibited work as a non-handicapped person. The guard was furious and demanded that he should pay for the entrance ticket. The ex-blind man just gestured that he could not hear a thing because he was deaf. He was than escorted out of the museum.
He was never asked to remove his mask.
