'Forced empathy' for visitors at Tate Modern migrant exhibit

At the Tate Modern in London, visitors will have to work together to reveal the artwork about the migration crisis that is hidden underneath.

    Visitors to the Tate Modern art gallery in London may be leaving the latest exhibition in tears, and they may not even see the entire exhibit.

    Best known for her politically engaged projects, Cuban artist Tania Bruguera is showing a new piece that addresses the issue of global migration.

    Her interactive installation features a menthol-scented room, designed to provoke crying, and a concealed image that requires the cooperation of hundreds of people to view.
