Interacting higher-spin gauge fields can be described by Vasiliev Theory. This theory is technically quite involved. The first part of my talk will focus on the physical implications of Vasiliev Theory without developing its technical aspects. In particular locality will take center stage. The second part of my talk gives a pedagogical overview of Vasiliev Theory and sketches how the physical results were obtained.
