Symposium:
symposium | sim’põze%-®lig;m noun {pl. -sia | ze%-®lig; | or -siums}
*a drinking party with music and convivial intellectual discussion, esp. as held in ancient Greece after a banquet {and notable as the title of a work by Plato}

ORIGIN: Late 16th cent. {denoting a drinking party}: via Latin from Greek sumposion, from sumpot%-®lig;s ‘fellow drinker,’ from sum -together and pot%-®lig;s-drinker

Using the ghost of a tequila bar as a starting point, Julieta Aranda and Eduardo Sarabia will host a domino tournament as the center point for a discussion about the natural handicaps of traditional discussions. Later on there will be a screening of Liam Gilick’s informal bar talks after his seminar Five Short Texts on the Possibility of Creating an Economy of Equivalence, which was held at unitednationsplaza in Berlin earlier this year. The screening will be introduced by Anton Vidokle.

Music drinking to follow!
