Our memories are strongly linked to scent that can instantly bring us back to a different time and place: a former lover, the house of your grandmother or the gym at your old school. Could we also evoke the past of a city by scent?
Visual artist Sanne Vaassen designed the walk In Search of Lost Time, that takes you back to the history of the city of Maastricht. During this walk you will discover parts of the city’s past by smelling herbs, flowers, and extracts. The detailled guide consists of a map and a set of scent sticks that you can take on your trip.
In Search of Lost Time costs 20 euro and is only available in Dutch.
