A very short conference and a very long dinner
Saturday 20 June 2009, 14.00–21.30
14.00–17.00 symposium 18.00–21.30 dinner in the East Room""In short, this event brings together practitioners and theoreticians of the humanities, arts and sciences to extol or berate, to discuss, explore and explain shortness in all its spatial and temporal manifestations..."
"...The short conference is followed by a long dinner in Tate Modern's East Room. Dinner guests will be entertained by short speeches and the whole event is supplemented by short films, performances and various intervention..."
See here the panel discussion (and in the background twitter).
What a view!http://twitpic.com/7wwtk
