THE LONGPLAYER CONVERSATION 2021
Denise Ferreira da Silva and Timothy Morton
Online, presented in partnership with the British Library
27 October, 19:30 – 20:45
The Longplayer Conversations began in 2005 as a way of celebrating the vision behind Longplayer’s long term aspirations. Each year we invite leading cultural thinkers to conduct a public conversation inspired by the philosophical premise of Longplayer, a project which unfolds, in real-time, over the course of a millennium.
This year’s edition brought together two of the most important thinkers and cultural activists of our age for a fascinating conversation, informed by their profound engagement with ecology, race and social justice.
Through the lens of Longplayer, they discussed moving towards global equity in human and non-human relations and how the Black Lives Matter movement is key to a properly green and socially sustainable future.
This online event, free to attend, was introduced by the Chair of the Longplayer Trust, Gareth Evans.
