PKN Kosice Vol. 5 and 6

We get a double-header from PechaKucha Night in Kosice today, as organizer Miso Hudak sends us reports for both volumes 5 and 6. We've also included a few photos from the events, but there's lots more to see in the following Flickr photosets: Vol. 5 and Vol. 6. Vol. 5 was a special event, where we invited small NGOs to show their works and projects. We decided to invite all these organization on one night because of past experience. If you bring together organizations who educate kids in poor regions populated by Roma/Gypsy minorities, and after that some great designer shows his plans for a new light airplane you will have mixed feelings. So we chose organizations and individuals who works with handicapped people, minorities, social disadvantaged groups and similar. The audience had the opportunity to focus on different topics like at any other other PechaKucha Night. Vol. 6 was also a special event, but for different reasons. We held a PechaKucha Night on March 8th -- International Women's Day. In our central Europe region we used to celebrate this holiday for decades. Now we have two similar special days for girls and women -- Mother's Day and International Women's Day -- and we celebrate them both equally! We invited nine ladies (fashion designer, architect, jewelery designer, stage designer, graphic designer, painter, dancer, graphic designer and experimental printmaker) who also received a flower before the presentation. We moved to a new venue, old military warehouses in the city center that are transforming into a cultural centre. We love this place and as you can see in the photos, everybody loves it. You would too! We used three projections, we greeted our thousandth spectator (now we are on number 1140 after 6 nights) at PechaKucha Night in Kosice -- it was a great night with outstanding vibes and atmosphere. It was the greatest PechaKucha in Kosice ever! Below, photos from PKN Kosice Vol. 6.

Camouflage is the New Plaid

“None of us are stalking prey or being hunted by our enemies…” Researcher and designer Sjef van Gaalen is interested in the history of why this traditionally military pattern has become part of popular fashion culture. In “Camouflage is the New Plaid” from PKN Tokyo Vol. 124, he deconstructs the ironies associated with fashion being at odds with the military and the military seemingly more concerned with the image that camouflage conveys to new recruits than with its practical, tactical use.
