The Long Table is a format for discussion that uses the setting of a domestic dinner table as a means to generate public conversation.
Conceived in 2003 by artist Lois Weaver in response to conventional panel discussions, the Long Table is a format that allows for many different voices to be heard in a public setting.
The Long Table has been installed and performed as a public dinner between artists, activists, academics, advocates and general audiences on subjects such performance, technology, social engagement and human rights.
During Carsten Höller: Decision Hayward Gallery will host a Long Table discussion each weekend. Join us to discuss and debate different aspects of the exhibition.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, this series of events regrettably has to be cancelled.
