Event description
Interintellect founder Anna Gát explores famous portrayals of depression in art and the role of the disease in artists' lives

About this Event

At this small, intimate Interintellect Salon we will explore some famous portrayals of depression in art and literature:

Was Hamlet grieving or did he suffer from a mental illness? Is it informative or exploitative to make a film about Virginia Woolf's suffering? Is the apocalypse in Melancholia a metaphor, or something more? Is The Scream about Munch - or about all of us...?

We will also touch upon whether depression - when experienced by the artist - can be a fuel for creativity, or if it is the great impeding shadow every creator ultimately has to defeat.

We hope you'll join us.
