|Some of our most enlightened conversations develop while sitting around during, or after, a meal; discussing subjects that seem to rise out of thin air, grafting together the collective imaginings of those gathered around the table in front of us. Revolutionary Table harnesses the usefulness of The Meal and The Table as tools to allow discussion to immerge regarding notions of revolution and the everyday.
For each installment of Revolutionary Table a new host - and new home - invites friends and strangers alike to enjoy a meal with one another and discuss a topic specific to the hosts interests that relates to these notion of how we encounter revolution within the everyday, and in what ways these encounters effect our daily lives.
At each of the dinners we bring along with us a radio transmitter. The discussion around the table is recorded, and simultaneously broadcast over the airwaves to the surrounding neighborhood. Prior to the start of the dinner we ask guests to write out notes to the neighborhood inviting them to listen in on their radios. We then go and slip these notes under the doors up and down the block.
