“Hey, INT!” they squawked. “Show me the coolest shit you saw on the internet this week.” Ever obedient and eager to please, we answered, and put together this little list of some of the best stuff online we’ve spotted of late.

Hackney Wick is home to more artists than anywhere else in Europe, and Portraits of Hackney Wick is a nice series of short profiles on creatives from the area directed by Souleyman Messalti (Will)

In the wake of Jeremy Corbyn’s appointment as leader of the Labour Party and those weird memes where his eyes appear on a cat’s head, Design Week has looked at what his cabinet proposes for creativity. It looks pretty good to us. (Emily)

Fascinating article in The Independent about Baroness Elsa von Freytag-Loringhoven, the first American Dada artist. It traces her life and career in colourful detail but also suggests that she could be in fact be responsible for Marcel Duchamp’s Fountain (Beccy)

Cool film by Agostina Gálvez showing off the mighty skills of the American rhythmic gymnastics Olympic hopefuls (Emily)

The Guardian speaks to the “graffiti grannies” of Lisbon in this lovely article. Lara Seixo Rodrigues runs Lata65, an organisation that holds workshops for over-65s who are interested in street art – currently the oldest member of the group is 90 years old. (Beccy)

INT Works head of creative, Karl Toomey, whacked this in my inbox today . Simply named The Pope Vs The Wind, it shows the head of all things holy having wardrobe malfunctions in public, all caused by gusts of wind. Some of them almost look staged, like some conceptual high-end fashion shoot for Pope robes. (Social Simon)

Riding on the wave of a new Joan Didion biography, this podcast from The New Yorker discusses her all-pervading influence in writing and pop culture. (Alex H)
