Join Interintellect host Patricia Hurducas for a five-day Interintellect Summer Experience—an online retreat taking place over one week (with IRL plus ones encouraged). Come learn, make friends, and explore our minds in motion and how we see the world and ourselves.
This is a five-day series of 1 hour salons—booked together in one price below. Each salon runs from 7 PM to 8 PM CET.
“Not to find one’s way around a city does not mean much. But to lose one’s way in a city, as one loses one’s way in a forest, requires some schooling. Street names must speak to the urban wanderer like the snapping of dry twigs, and little streets in the heart of the city must reflect the times of day, for him, as clearly as a mountain valley. This art I acquired rather late in life; it fulfilled a dream, of which the first traces were labyrinths on the blotting papers in my school notebooks.” – Walter Benjamin
As a walking salon, participants can opt to join while walking and exploring new places (museums, cafés, parks, streets), or join from the porch with a glass of wine and bring a plus one.
One week before the salons, you will have access to:
- an ebook written and curated by the host with images, essays, interviews focused on flânerie, perception, ways of seeing, art
- access to a private Discord channel where we will document our walks and share photos, ideas, questions pre- and post- salons
- The Arcades Project by Walter Benjamin (book)
- Rilke’s Poems
- The Man of the Crow (short story)
- Perception by Godfrey Vesey (book)
