Polo de Pensamento Contemporaneo (POP), Jardim Botanico, Rio de Janeiro

POP is like an alternative school, with classes that last from one day to one week on art history, philosophy—you name it. It’s a place where I know I will learn something and engage with interesting people. I met my great assistant, Guto Martino, while teaching a course on multimedia festivals here. Rua Conde Afonso Celso 103, 55/(21) 2286-3299, polodepensamento.com.br.
