Creating a European Television Network

BY CAMPUS EUROPE
@ VOL 26 ON APR 09, 2015

The idea behind CampusEurope originated from a local student TV in Maastricht (BreakingMaas). During the process of making BreakingMaas a sustainable project, the group of students started to discover other Student TVs around the Netherlands. It was with this discovery that they had the idea to try and create a network of student TVs that would produce a European student television show.

One of the questions they asked themselves is: why do we feel the need for a European student television show? They could have pursued media projects through their local student TV, which would have allowed them to produce local reports in better quality and with less work.

However in a more connected Europe where one sees governments in dispute with each other, and where news is limited to national perspectives, the students felt the urge to produce content which would allow them to understand multiple perspectives on a European issue.

This is where the project is of great significance; CampusEurope give students from all over Europe a stage to voice their opinions on a political, social and economic subject, which in the end affects all Europeans, no matter how far they live from each other. That’s why they believe that CampusEurope provides the essential platform to exchange opinions and find a common ground in an interconnected world.

Ceramic Assemblies

BY LIMINAL PROJECTS (OMAR KAHN AND LAURA GARÓFALO)
@ VOL 17 ON SEP 15, 2016

"Ask a ceramicist and they will insist that the material lives."

In Ceramic Assemblies from PechaKucha Buffalo vol. 17, Laura Garófalo and Omar Kahn of Liminal Projects discuss their prototypes for ceramic building systems that were developed at the European Ceramics Workcentre (ekwc), in Oisterwijk, the Netherlands. They are designs that explore ways that architecture can mediate heat, water and nature. Ceramics, which are fired clay, are one of the oldest building materials. But they defy easy categorization because their behavior and properties are so diverse. Ceramics were used to build the Roman aqueducts and also used for the heat shield on the Space Shuttle. Ask a ceramicist and they will insist that the material lives. It is this quality that Garófalo and Kahn want to capture and perpetuate in their work.

The story of European secularism

BY MUEID AL RAEE
@ VOL 32 ON FEB 06, 2017

Mueid Al Raee is interested in the connection of philosophy and religion. He talks about the influences that shaped Spinoza’s work on philosophy, religion, and understanding the nature of God.

Mueid presents Averroes as an important character in the story of secularism. Averroes is often referred to as the father of European Secularism. Mueid argues that religion played an important role in the formulation of the philosophy of secularism as we know it today in Europe.

His message is that we should challenge the ideas that consider secularism and religion as opposites.

PKN Kansas City Vol. 6

PechaKucha Night was back in Kansas City last week for a sixth edition, and as organizer Jayne Higdon tells us, it was a great one. It was a blast, and we had yet another packed house. Nine presenters entertained the crowd with tales of purposely stained ceramics (lipstick on the rim or a hair on a plate in the glaze), a walk along the city's major river through sketches, and an essay on how design won't save the world. Below, a few more photos from PKN Kansas City Vol. 6 -- there's more to see in this Flickr photoset.

Aliens Might Have Claimed My Sisters

"The love of the process isnt about solving, but about the asking. It's taking your agenda out of the picture and seeing what there is to be discovered." Leah Ball's childhood fascination with outer space, alien beings, and cosmic thinking informs her research, inquiry, and design process. In "Aliens Might Have Claimed My Sisters" from PKN Chicago Vol. 29 Leah shows us her passion for creation, and how that passion started out with metal working, and has led her to ceramics. Every work she creates she does so in reference to her miniscule presence in the vast universe.

Greetings from the Colonies: Postcards from a Painful Past

"Some [postcards] promoted colonial ideology and served to uphold the supposed hierarchy of the world, with white societies on top." The Golden Age of postcards (1907-1915) coincided with the popularization of anthropology and renewed interest in European colonies. Colonial postcards from this time illustrate some of the most prominent ideas of colonialism and beliefs regarding ethnic hierarchy. In Greetings from the Colonies: Postcards from a Painful Past from PechaKucha Night Maastricht Vol. 27, writer and scholar Inge Oosterhoff retraces these ideas, as well as the ways in which France, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and other colonizing countries viewed and propagandized their “colonized peoples.”
