Description: For History is Written by the Winners, Brooklyn based handcrafted game designers Fredericks & Mae stage a grand tournament at the Museum of Art and Design. A participatory event that engages this tension between competition and communion, and answers the question of the role of a modern design museum by articulating it as an arena, History is Written by the Winners highlights how museums differ from other cultural instructions, like libraries, in that they, by design, induce growing forms of interaction. Using Fredericks & Mae's arsenal of games, the Museum will bring visitors into connection, competition, and thrall.
