BY AARON ANFINSON
@ VOL 27 ON MAY 25, 2016

Aaron Anfinson shares his experience of photographing the Umbrella Revolution as it unfolded over nearly 3 months in the autumn of 2015 in Hong Kong. What began as a series of peaceful sit-in street protests - against the proposed reforms to the Hong Kong electoral system and the pre-screening of candidates for the Chief Executive election in 2017 - escalated to include more than 100,000 protesters occupying key areas in Admiralty, Causeway Bay and Mong Kok punctuated by violent clashes between students, triads and riot gear clad police armed with batons and tear gas. Anfinson's beat poetry inflected voice sets the scene for his intense emotional images.

Occupying Utopia at PechaKucha Night Aalborg #13

We had an AWSOME! event in Aalborg denmark last thursday and I'm still high on it...as you can hear! We made this PechaKucha Night in Aalborg - our 13. event happen at IMAGES Festival in Karlinelunden Aalborg thursday september 5., where artists from mainly Asia and Africa were invited all week to show works, do performances, artisttalks, workshops and play concerts with danish artists. The theme of the festival and PechaKucha was Occupy Utopia!   And what an event! Around 150 came to the Worlduniversitytent, where photographer Stephen Freiheit exhibited his moving photos with portraits of people from all over the world and his photoproject and -book "Things you can't buy for money". Filled with photocontributors from Nepal, Burma and many other places Stephen Freiheits photos connects people and creates awareness of the different ways of living. Of course it had to be Stephen Freiheit who opened this PechaKucha Night #13 in Aalborg by telling a fraction of the stories he has to share from his travels in Asia living with the people he portraits. Susanne Ahrenkiel is a danish sculpture artist taking part in Imags Festival, and she shared the experience of working with Burkina Faso artists Xavier Sayago and Sahab Koanda together with danish artist Kirsten Barlit - and the artistic progress and cultural challenges that took place during the 14 days they spent working together here in Denmark.   To make an event like this happen with artists coming in from across the earth also creates the challenge of even getting there to the event. So unfortunately cambodian street artist Peap Tarr, who created this PechaKucha Night poster couldn't get to Denmark to present at PechaKucha Night in Aalborg due to visatrouble with the danish authorities :-(    In stead an artist from Ghana jumped in on short notice just the day before PechaKucha Night: Eric Adjetey Anang from KANE KWEI Carpentry Workshop is making coffins as 3rd. generation in the family - yes you read correctly - coffins  - but made as artistic references either, to who the person was alive or to the spirit of an animal - humour, colourfullness, playfullness and also political statements. And a questioning of the nescessity of leaving life in only sorrow and not celebrating the life that just ended. This art-project takes Eric Adjetey Anang all over the world exhibiting and doing artisttalks. Here in Aalborg he amongst others worked together with danish street-artist Lars Pank to create a human size macrell-tomatocan-coffin :-) And following Eric as PechaKucha presenter was graphic illustrator and street-artist Lars Pank telling about both his latest art-projects Storby-stories, inspiration and co-working with other artists. Painter Bong Delfin currently work in Kerteminde Denmark and was selected as artist of the year there Bong Delfin comes from the Philipines. Bong talked about occupying his utopia thrugh his poetic imaginary painting universe that are also very strong statements.   In our short break we had been given the opportunity to show a short documentary made i english by Mads Jeppesen about danish artist Dennis Seide - choosing life as an artist in stead of getting a steady monthly paycheck in your mailbox every month. That lead well up to our second half started by another danish artist Jens Munk Clemmensen. He and two fellow artists have founded CAT Studio as both a studio and a growth-place - apprentice- and mentorship for young art-talents. Jens wanted to share this idea to be taken by other artists to oyher places around the world.   Educational revolutions swept over Europe during the sixtees. A place in Thy Denmark caught the attension of the world back then because of it's prominent guests John Lennon Yoko Ono and Yoko Onos daughter. They became friends with the founders of what was called æ Verdensuniveritet / a Worlduniversity out in the countryside in the middle of nowhere - Sara Damskier and her husband then Aage Rosendahl Nielsen. Sara Damskier talked about making the impossible happen out in the middle of nowhere transforming ideas of education and knowledge in broad perspective - seeing the importance of education of whole human beings. Occupying that Utopia became very present and lead over to the second speaker in same presentation - from Aalborg University art & Technology Fak Heinrich. Falk gave a short tour de force of the new world university - streamlined education forgot some values - maybee with the need to once again incorporate what was acknowledged back in the sixtees. You are the one who can make changes happen - occupying Utopia possible.   A strong believer in that action matters is venezuelean lawyer Ronald Thomas Graterol. He talked about the importance of improving conditions for children all over the world, and how you can contribute with your time through volunteer work for ngo Save the children.   Another challenge making an event like this happen are languages, and how to make yourself understood not talking danish or english. Cao Trung Vinh documentary film director had the help of Cao Thanh Há to translate a beautiful vietamese to english along in his presentation. Vinh is travelling Vietnam to collect knowledge about traditional villagefestivals to offer to connect them with contemporary artist ideas, and has made movies anout the events.   Last but not least another artist not english speaking - but mongolian! Hugjiltu is leadsinger in the band Ajinai - they played at Roskilde festival in Denmark in july as well as at the much smaller Aalborg Blues Festival august to standing applause. Hugjiltu wanted to share knowledge about the role nature and wide grassranges has to mongolian people, festivals, nomadelives - and what the mongolian horse (Ajinai) means to him. In the last part of his presentation he played accompanied by artworks by his friend and photographer Alusi. A beautiful ending to a wonderfull evening of occupying utopia, and I don't think anyone went home untouched, wiser or moved. This a great experience that created contacts, knowledge and understanding between people - all that PechaKucha is meant to do.
