Greetings from the colonies: Postcards from a painful past
BY INGE OOSTERHOFF
@ VOL 27
ON NOV 23, 2015
"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.”
This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Wednesday, December 15, 2015.

City Greetings: From Cleveland to Athens
Exchanging photographic or video greetings between PechaKucha Night cities is something we've been seeing for a while now, and here's an example of some good luck cheers between two cities -- Cleveland and Athens -- who recently celebrated their third and second volumes respectively. Pictured above, greetings from Cleveland. Below, the response from Athens. The two cities plan on continuing the exchanges at future events.
PKN Cleveland Vol. 3
PechaKucha Night returned to Cleveland earlier this month for a third edition, and as you'll see from the photos -- there's a Flickr photoset -- it was another great showing for the city. On top of the city greetings exchange we mentioned yesterday, we're pretty excited about the venue that organizers Mike Christoff and Raseem Parker are planning to use for Vol. 5 (to be held in the fall), "a virtually abandoned Subway Tunnel/Bridge Deck that runs underneath Cleveland's Detroit Superior Bridge in conjunction with an Arts Fest." Should be amazing. Below, a few more photos from PKN Cleveland Vol. 3. The next edition will be held at the Sterling Building July 10.
Greetings from PKN Providence
httpvh://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gol-MYZW0FU One fun component from the recent PechaKucha Night in Providence Vol. 7 -- see the event report -- was this video greeting. Organizer Stephanie Gerson adds: The best part of the night might not have been a presentation at all, but a greeting we filmed in response to one from the PK folks in Worcester, MA. Note that our mayor is the first “C”!

Looking at another presentation from last week's PechaKucha Night in Tokyo Vol. 66, this time it's Ryotaro Bordini Chikushi's "Peace Sweater" project: A great and inspiring independent peace project. Typography meets Fashion. Collaboration and Fusion. Universal greetings and Fair Trade production -- a clothing project with a global message. Make sure to watch the presentation full-screen!
Some Lovely Greetings from Huddersfield
Huddersfield is participating in its own way in today's Inspire Japan efforts with a lovely site that shows various video greetings -- in the form of animated gifs -- that really come off looking quite nice. The city also held its Vol. 4 two days ago, raising funds at that event -- we covered it here.
Guilty Pleasures of a Video Game Writer and Greetings from Osijek
Presentations For nearly 8 years Steve Jaros has been lucky enough to be a working writer in the video games industry. Most recently he was nominated for best writing at the Game Developers Choice Awards for his work on the game Saints Row: The Third. Naturally, he lost to Portal 2. In this presentation (from PKN Champaign-Urbana Vol. 9), Steve shares some of his guilty pleasures. Akio Aoki (Miru) covers (in Japanese, from PKN Tokyo Vol. 93) a few of his projects and products, and also shares some of the exhibitions that have featured his work. Posters We kick off the week with a few new posters on our Tumblr blog. Covered are the following events: PKN Halifax Vol. 11, PKN Memphis Vol. 3, PKN London Vol. 8, and PKN Shenzhen Vol. 11, pictured above. Photos and video We have one new gallery of photos [Facebook] to share with you today, from last week's PKN Amsterdam Vol. 22. Pictured above, a look at the warehouse-like venue. When we approve a new PKN series, we ask the new organizer (or team) to send us a greeting video (PK founders Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham do the same for the city's first event). Here's the wonderful video from the organizers of PKN Osijek. Links Today's links include a few tips on making a PechaKucha presentation, and some nice coverage of Tulsa's recent first PKN."PechaKucha for professional presentations - Do's and Don'ts" [Where Next]"PechaKucha Night at Living Arts of Tulsa celebrates creativity" [Tulsa World]Calendar It's going to be a slow week -- summer has officially hit -- but don't let that stop you from catching the events that are being held, like tonight's (July 17) PKN Jacksonville Vol. 20.
Greetings from PKN Cities
As part of this week's 10th anniversary celebrations, we asked PKN city organizers to send us a special greeting image that we will include in a special City Loop, to share at our PKN Tokyo Vol. 100 -- the City Loop is the slideshow that is shown at all PKNs before the the start and during the breaks, showing photos from PKN events around the world. We've received so many great ones, like the one you see pictured here, from the PKN Murcia organizers. We will also share this special City Loop with all city organizers, and so they may share it at a PKN near you.
