Move through the museums’ collections with an eye toward games and game play. Stop at a Bauhaus chess set designed by Josef Hartwig in 1920s Germany; engraved tarot playing cards from 19th-century Tuscany; and Kano Tanshin’s painting "Floating Wine Cup Poetry Game" from Edo period Japan. Along the way, discuss issues of form and function, mysticism, and how play comes together with the pursuit of knowledge.
