Notion of the gift

With a surprise dinner by Elín Hansdóttir and Lynn Peemoeller

The third night’s topic is the “Notion of the gift“.  With the current abundance of objects and commodities, what is it that still persists in this tradition of exchange? Why do we still need an object to confirm a relationship? How can we rethink the gesture of gift-giving in its banality and what does it reveal about the role of gifts as mediators in the context of the social bonds of reciprocity?
