DADA

BY MIGUEL PEREZ-LA PLANTE
@ VOL 137 ON JUN 29, 2016

"The story [we're] telling you tonight is about the first global art movement which started right here, 100 years ago, in the old town of Zurich, in a place called 'The Cabaret Voltaire.'"

Just over 100 years ago, the Dadaists used poetry, prose, parody, and provocation to confront and question the WWI society that brought so much destruction. This "nonsensical" art movement was perhaps the most decisive single influence on the development of twentieth-century art, and its innovations are a continuing source of inspiration to artists today -- Hear from Swiss Embassy Public Affairs head Miguel Perez-LaPlante and curator Yukiko Shikata speak on this radical movement in DADA from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol 137.

In The Firefly from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 137, Matthew Roberts shares how he reinvented the Honda Super Cub. With more units sold than any other motorised mode of transport in human history, accepting the challenge of creating a Honda Super Cub that would wow the world (and win a few races along the way) was a brave move indeed.

Extreme Beauty

BY APPLE CHUA
@ VOL 137 ON JUN 29, 2016

"Photography gives me a medium to escape from daily routine life by creating something beautiful"

In Extreme Beauty from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol. 137, Fashion photographer Apple Chua shares in depth how she turned her passion into her career. She pushed the boundary of incorporating her hobby of hiking volcanoes into her commissioned works to create photos that comprised an epic and cinematic composition of colours, glamour, elegance, and whimsical femininity that is coupled with a futuristic look and inspirations from the renaissance era. That certain elusive quality became her signature style.

Dancing in the Office

BY YULIA SKOGOREVA

"For me, dancers represent freedom, while salarymen represent something opposite. I like to create this interaction."

In Dancing in the Office from PKN Tokyo Vol. 136, photographer Yulia Skogoreva found herself on an interesting and unexpected path that took her from linguistics, to dance, to photography. In her latest project she juxtaposes two completely opposite elements of society, busy salarymen and dancers, and the results are delightful. Have a look!
