FACES of MUSTANG.

BY MARCUS BASTEL
@ VOL 11 ON JUN 16, 2016

Marcus Bastel is a London based photographer originally from Germany. He first came to the UK to study Fine Art at Sheffield Hallam University, followed by a 2 year program at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam. At the time he was very much a multi media artist but now concentrates on photography and the writing of short stories. He has exhibited internationally most recently in Tokyo as part of the Portrait Salon Group exhibition, in London at the 125 Magazine Show and Berlin at Cruise and Callas. His self-published 2010 book BUT WHERE ARE ALL THE PEOPLE won honorable mention at the Photography Book Now competition. His work is perhaps best described as having a filmic quality, like a set getting ready for action. He refers to his work as being still movies, a narrative is implied and a hint of suspense introduced. His photography is represented by Millennium Images, Gallery Stock and Plainpicture. Some of his work can be found at the Diner dotted around London. He is currently working on a project called Faces of Mustang, which aims to connect with the owners of Ford Mustangs around the US, hear stories that make the relationship special and take a portrait of them alongside the legendary car. After 15 visits to the American Southwest and a curiosity to better understand America, he thought that the Mustang community would be a good starting point. America itself is in a state of commotion at present, which makes this a doubly interesting undertaking.

The project will present itself online, as a publication and exhibition, stories and portraits, with added location shots to instill a sense of place and in order to get this rolling is currently running his first kickstarter campaign.

For his writing he is represented by Anoukh Foerg Literary agency in Munich. He works in a supportive role at Central Saint Martins School of Art. Photographer, writer, traveller and inventor of tales, with a big passion for big landscapes, middle of nowhere places and long road trips. And having grown up with cowboys and Indians on the TV those places are more often than not located in the wild west.

On the island of Haiti of the 9.2 million people, 80% live below the International Poverty Line equating to 7.4 million people with an average income of less than $2 per day. Haiti is the poorest nation in the western hemisphere. The most impactful way to help Haiti is to empower them to help themselves. Leadership changes everything.

In addition to provocative ideas and lively presentations, PKN5 features a cash bar, sweet treats, and tunes provided by DJ Aaron Levin from Weird Canada and CJSR.

I'll invite you to visit the "PechaKucha for Haiti" section of the site for more details -- yes, we are still updating that page with the latest news, including adding links to Haiti-related presentations that have gone online -- but we're very happy to announce that the funds raised so far have paid for a new school! Today - 20 days later - it gives us great pride in announcing that the PechaKucha global network of cities, organizers, presenters and fans has raised over $60,000 which allows Architecture For Humanity to build the first PechaKucha School in Haiti.

PechaKucha x School of the Art Institute of Chicago

Later this month (October 23), PechaKucha Night in Chicago is teaming up with the School of the Art Institute of Chicago for a special PechaKucha event. Here's more from PKN Chicago organizer Peter Exley: Since PK began in Chicago, one of the most fertile sources of presenters and supporters seems to have been the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Recognizing this, PKN Chicago is organizing a special PK event to coincide with this year's parents weekend. So Moms, Mums, and Dads from around the world converging on Chicago with their offspring attending SAIC will discover PK, and be on the lookout for it back home in their cities. And a new crop of young creatives will get their first taste of PK. We're very excited to be doing this with the [Art Insti] "tute." The poster for the event was designed by Eric Baskauskas.

During the "PechaKucha Day for Haiti," we were able to raise $80,000 for Architecture for Humanity. Their work went into high gear in 2011, and we were extremely proud to see the construction of the school, École La Dignité, that PechaKucha funded along with the Stiller Foundation -- it opened on November 7, 2011. Thank you everyone who supported PechaKucha for Haiti and a massive thank you to Cameron Sinclair and his team for making the school a reality.

PechaKucha School in Haiti

On the 20th of February 2010, the 7th anniversary of PechaKucha Night, 117 cities came together on a single day and held events across the globe to support Architecture for Humanity's plans for rebuilding in Haiti. Other PechaKucha events for Haiti during February took this total to 174, and with cities still holding PKN events for Haiti in March this total topped 200. Today -- 20 days later -- it gives us great pride in announcing that the PechaKucha global network of cities, organizers, presenters and fans has raised over $60,000 which allows Architecture For Humanity to build the first PechaKucha School in Haiti. This just in from Architecture for Humanity's Cameron Sinclair: Our team arrived in Haiti last week, and we will know more about specific costs in the next few weeks. Our preliminary estimates for school costs are:Basic Costs Main Teaching Blocks (3) $30,000Toilet Block (1) $5,000Cafeteria $15,000Teachers Room $5,000 Landscaping/Reforestation $5,000 Total: $60,000 We will know more about volunteer needs also in the next few weeks but probably won't have volunteers there until the summer or later, so we will keep you posted on this. Really looking forward to seeing all the 100s of presentations online in the next few weeks. Good luck with the uploading! Thank you for organizing such an amazing event!

PechaKucha in the Classroom

At Tokyo's Vol. 100, held back in February of this year, a school teacher named Tomoko Koda was in attendance, and loved the presentation "The World's Best City When It Rains" by Jesper Larsson so much that she contacted him afterwards, asking if he could come to the school where she works (KAIS) to do a workshop with her students based on that presentation. He couldn't make it before leaving the country (he was in town on a visit), but he encouraged them to do it anyway. And so they did.    We later contacted Tomoko, and she had this to say:   "It was our first attempt to have a PechaKucha event at our school, and the students exceeded my expectation -- it was a huge success! Everyone talked about what they are passionate about (skateboard, basketball, computer games), their new ideas (new style of alarm clocks, creative game to get a seat on a crowded train), and new perspectives (see the positive side of moving, online activities). Students got to learn their friends' ideas and shared opinions. We had so much fun and hope to have it every year!"   We've invited Tomoko to come present at one of our upcoming PKNs in Tokyo, and we can't wait to hear her talk about this experience of using the PK format with her students.

Pechakucha-2017-1

Another successful edition of PechaKucha at Maastricht School of Management

“PechaKucha teaches us four important skills in management,” said Oliver Olson, director of Global Education, as he opened the fourth annual edition of MSM goes PechaKucha on Friday 17 March. “1. Following rules, 2. Being concise, 3. Public speaking, 4. Improvisation” Its strict format – 20 slides, 20 second per slide – forces you to think carefully about your message and to stay focused. At the same time, it allows you to practice your presentation and public speaking skills, and develop perhaps the most important one, which will help you throughout life in any situation, the skill of improvisation.” Stimulated by these encouraging words, no less than 11 MBA and MM students took the PechaKucha stage at MSM in front of a full audience of staff, students, friends, family members and MSM stakeholders. As always at MSM, their stories came from all over world, from Kenya to Peru, from Greece to Vietnam, from India to Chile and more. The students talked about topics that mattered to them and transformed the way they saw the world and the future, and the common point between all their stories was that although personal, they all had a deeper and universal value and meaning. We heard about what we can learn from observing birds in a city like Lima, how the financial crisis in Greece led to the development of new business ideas, why we should thank our enemies, the power of relationships, a successful financial product made in Kenya, and why education and life-long learning are key to making the world a better place. T The PechaKucha team in Maastricht complimented the students on their excellent choice of topics and slides. The strength of the PechaKucha format lies in the combination of an authentic message and powerful images. The presenters scored high on these points, whilst keep their own presentation and delivery style. Some used humor, others metaphors, some walked up and down the stage, others asked questions to the audience. The dynamic and engaging pace of the presentations lifted everyone’s spirits on this Friday afternoon. The event, perfectly organized by Pilar Gonzalez, ended – how else? – with a brilliant improvisation on random slides by Oliver Olson himself, who took the PechaKucha standards to yet a higher presentation level under huge laughter and applause from the public. All presentations will be online soon, don’t miss them!   By Sueli Brodin
