Dialogues about the Table

Recording of the second session of "Space and Food: Table, Home, Market" debates

[Catalan | 01:53:03]

Do we still eat at the table? Are there changes in the way we sit together at the table? The places where we eat nowadays are increasingly diverse. The city today has intense, and often irregular rhythms thus obliging us to organise meals with other priorities and conditions. We eat standing next to a food truck or sitting on the steps of a building. The table often disappears as an object, only to reappear transformed in other guises and in surprising places. The object that, until recently, we used to recognise as a place of togetherness in eating is adopting different forms that restructure the relationship between food and domesticity.
