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 Beijing Vol. 9

PechaKucha Night hit the city of Beijing late last month for a ninth time, attracting over 300 at that city's Factory 798 art hub. One of the organizers, Alessandra Hendersen, contributes this report: On February 28, Pecha Kucha Beijing hosted its ninth edition at the Yan Club Arts Center in Factory 798, a former industrial complex turned art hub where the most avant-garde contemporary art galleries and studios are found alongside hip cafes and design spaces. Attended by well over 300 of the most curious types in Beijing, PK BJ Edition 9 featured compelling talks from artists, architects, designers, film industry insiders and more. While the audience hung over the gallery’s balustrade and vied for space on the tiered steps, the ten speakers dazzled with black and white photographic images of Afghanistan, the symbiotic relationship between religion and brand, sneak peaks of short films created by the most cutting edge Chinese directors, and so on. We were even lucky enough to import a fellow Pecha Kucha-ite from our Japanese counterparts, Mr. Satoshi Ohashi of Zaha Hadid architects, an organizer in Hamamatsu, Japan. One of the most exciting speeches of the night came from Ilya Rozhdestvensky, Managing Director of ONEDREAMRUSH, a project featuring 42 short films of 42 seconds each by world famous directors. More information on his project can be found at www.42x42.com. Above and below, images from one of Satoshi Ohashi's projects, followed by a few images taken from Ilya Rozhdestvensky's presentation. PKN Beijing Vol. 10 will take place May 23.

The Empty Church: My Year of Belief

“The church was empty, no one was sitting there, not even me. Nothing. It was the most beautiful thing I had ever felt.” Cartoonist and illustrator Dylan Horrocks begins with his childhood desire to believe in fantastical beings. In “The Empty Church: My Year of Belief” from PKN Christchurch Vol. 20, he shows us how after years of Atheism, he decided to give belief a chance, and he surveyed people in an attempt to see things through their eyes. He soon found the border between religion and unbelief was much more complicated that he had thought.

Drawing Tells a Better Story

"We are different, but we have something to share, like all of you ... I think the concept of love or empathy is not based on race or color or gender or religion. We all share this amazing feeling."One of the biggest stories in 2015 was the migrant crisis from Syria and parts of the Middle East. Kyoto-based researcher, and Syrian national, Rodi Alkader, has been drawing his thoughts on paper for years, but as the crisis unfolded, his drawings became a profound way for him to deal with his emotions. In this very personal presentation, "Drawing Tells a Better Story", from PechaKucha Night Kyoto Vol 19, Rodi shares his family's situation and adds a unique voice to the conversation. This presentation was part of the special PechaKucha Night Huddle held in Kyoto in October 2015.

Vol 10 Pecha Kucha Night 'HOME'

  London is back up and running at full steam ahead into 2016. We are now up to Volume 10! For Volume 10 we have adopted a theme - ‘Home’, which the speakers will have to get their tongues round. What does ‘Home’ mean to them from a personal perspective. ‘Home’ - a place where you long to go back to, longed to leave. Is it house, a yurt, a caravan or are you just a long way away from it. It is the one global thing we all share, no matter what our race, income or religion, we all want a place we can call ‘Home’. Hosting this brilliant night is The Geffrye. A good choice we think, as that is exactly what the museum sets out to do, explore the home from 1600 to now.

We are SOLD OUT! Vol 10 Pecha Kucha Night 'HOME'

In just a few days we will be heading along to the Geffrye Museum on Kingsland Road in Shoredtich for a wonderful evening of inspiring talks and we have now reached full capacity. The wonderful venue, the Geffrye Museum will be buzzing with 200 plus people! As a reminder about what is happening on 12 May at the Geffrye Museum -  This time around we have the theme "Home". It will totally up to the presenters interpretations of what they talk about - what "Home" means to them. With housing numbers and social housing a key concern for England's future; what the term "Home" really means is most definitely a personal perspective. Everyone has a different idea and varying experience of "Home", depending on where it is, who owns it, and what they do in it. Also, we think Home is topical subject for the month of May, given the mayoral election will have just taken place on 5 May 2016. ‘Home’ - a place where you long to go back to, longed to leave. Is it house, a yurt, a caravan or are you just a long way away from it. It is the one global thing we all share, no matter what our race, income or religion, we all want a place we can call ‘Home’. Further the venue of the Geffrye Museum - the Museum of the Home, which explores the home from 1600 to the present day has also influenced the choice of this theme. We can't wait to see you there!
