Friendship and hospitality frame a series of conversations this spring at the Vera List Center for Art and Politics in collaboration with the Bachelors Program at The New School for General Studies. Each evening features one faculty member from The New School who introduces their best friend—a prominent figure outside of The New School, and coming from a field different than that of the host. Friendship and hospitality serve as more than a framing device: they are engaged in a variety of ways and each pair is free to choose their approach in elaborating on the story of their friendship. The evening has a strong social element. The audience is invited to mix, eat, and drink—gestures of hospitality are extended to all present.
