A TARGET="_YOU"

BY BERIT HOL
@ VOL 15 ON OCT 06, 2015

Jouw internet gedrag genereerd data die o.a. gebruikt wordt voor het genereren van online advertenties. Maar hoe persoonlijk en invloedrijk zijn die advertenties werkelijk? Vormen we ons naar het gegeven stereotype omdat we niets anders meer zien?

Berit Hol ging in op alle persoonlijke online advertenties die ze online te zien kreeg. Ze maakte haar 'target identity' zichtbaar, op Instagram en Facebook.

Building Afrotopia

BY STACEY ROBINSON
@ VOL 16 ON APR 14, 2016

"The work becomes a conversation about class, race, gender and appropriation."

In Building Afrotopia from PechaKucha Buffalo Vol. 16, artist Stacey Robinson illustrates how speculating black futures became paramount in his artistic practice as a response to the global displacement of Black and Indigenous people. Robinson shares recent work, beginning with his current Pan-African flag series, representing nations where Black and Indigenous populations are controlled by extreme measures. Robinson then shares works from an in-progress book, 100 Afrofuturists Practitioners, depicting people building future spaces where Black peace exists using S.T.E.A.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art(s), and Math). Lastly, Robinson presents works inspired by the past Black Renaissance speculative Black Futures, with Afrofuturist digital collages inspired by Romare Bearden, James Denmark, Manzel Bowman, and other past and contemporary mixed media collage artists.

Who is the other? The Living Library

BY CRISTINA MANCIGOTTI
@ VOL 33 ON MAY 22, 2017

Don't judge a book by its cover.

Identities can create barriers, instil a feeling of fear and lead us to act in different ways. Or they can spark curiosity and make us eager to understand different perceptions and realities. Cristina Mancigotti talks about projects she has been involved across Europe (Italy, Hungary, France) which foster dialogue, such as the Living Library.

17th Biennale of Sydney Identity

As we've mentioned a few times already, PechaKucha is a proud participant of this year's 17th Biennale of Sydney, both in terms of providing a regular series of PK events throughout the duration of the event (which goes until August 1), and with the inclusion of a temporary SuperDeluxe event space -- for those who don't know, SuperDeluxe is home to PKN in Tokyo, and also where it all started. We bring this up because the Creative Review blog has posted an extensive look at the identity for the festival, created by Barnbrook, as well as the event catalogue.

Neena Mancuso

At this Wednesday's Vol. 104, join us to hear Neena Mancuso talk on the following topic, that she describes as follows: This will be about defining personal identity. Who determines who were are? Is our identity something we choose or is it how we're perceived? Does who we are change depending on who we're with or on the language we use? I'd like to invite others to ponder these questions of identity with me. 英語インストラクターのNeena MancusoさんがアイデンティティーについてPechaKucha Night 東京104(6月26日、水曜日)でプレゼンテーションしてくださいます。

Perspectives Post PechaKucha

How does it feel like to attend a PechaKucha Night for the first time?   Katrina Jacobsen Jensen gave a compelling presentation on "Redefining Identity" at PechaKucha Maastricht Vol. 27.   She wrote a blog post about her first PechaKucha experience.     Although it sounds a little bit like a strange sneeze….. if someone asks you to be a part of a PechaKucha night….say YES!   This year in Maastricht, I attended my first PechaKucha evening (Japanese for "chit chat") and now I'm hooked!    I was requested to prepare a 6 minute and 40 second speech which would be accompanied by 20 slides shown in 20 second intervals. The standard PechaKucha format designed to keep speakers concise and on track.    After finalizing the outline and selecting my 20 images, I began practising my presentation with a timer. Well….back to the drawing board! Who knew that fitting a speech into 6 minutes and 40 seconds would be such a challenge?    For some it may seem like a very long time. For me however, it was not an easy task to get my story across in a relatively short time span while keeping it interesting and making sure the audience would be able to comfortably follow the content.      Through many modifications and countless trial runs, I fine tuned my presentation and was ready for the event. As the final speaker of the evening, I had the unique opportunity to enjoy the entire night from the audience before my name was announced.    My fellow presenters' topics ranged from art to business, travel, history, health, music and more. I liked that there was no specific theme and felt that the variety kept the night diverse and offered a full spectrum of knowledge. Something of interest for everyone present.      The evening made me more aware of all kinds of events taking place in my neighbourhood and people around me that I previously knew nothing about. What an excellent networking tool!     The response to my speech on "Redefining Identity" was very positive and seemed to inspire people, which of course in turn, inspired me. It gave me a chance to further connect with my intelligent, creative community while sharing some of my experiences.    With more than 700 cities worldwide hosting PechaKucha evenings, there is a good chance that one is near you. So despite the name triggering an urge to sneeze, if you're ever given the opportunity, be sure to be in attendance!        by Katrina Jacobsen Jensen

Hardcore: Japan's Extreme Underground

“Japan is not just about video games, anime, sushi..but it is incredibly diverse, progressive and colourful.” In "Hardcore: Japan's Extreme Underground" from PechaKucha Night Tokyo Vol.139, Matt Ketchum speaks about his enthusiasm towards Japan's extreme underground life as a musician. Japan's well known for its robots, anime, sushi, and ninja, but that's nowhere near the whole of Japan's cultural identity. Unseen, unheard, and damn near unsearchable but nevertheless teeming with energy, there is a completely separate dimension of Japan's creative communities: the extreme music underground.
