Description Open City's new work, The Museum of Accidents, invited the audience on a misguided tour through their museum of the future, which featured human exhibits, accident relics and reenactments and curious creations of art and technology. Through speech acts, spectacle and speculation, The Museum of Accidents challenged the received wisdom and the museums of science and technology that 'forget' accidents.
