Joachim Frost

In between

CREATED ON APRIL 25, 2010
IN BERLIN
Joachim Frost's work explores the space between architecture and art. The "in between" is what excites him most. This talk was composed of inspiring quotes, a selection of some of Joachim's projects and products and also a bench he built in Oshika, Japan in the middle of the woods. Joachim brought some art objects he created that day together with his 6 year old daughter Willy, which went on sale after the presentations - all money raised went straight to Haiti. Amazing how these little art pieces encouraged all guests, who already donated, to donate again - and to take something very precious home. Thank you, Joachim! www.stiks.de

"Ballad Of The Lonely Fish"

BY DANIELLE DE PICCIOTTO + ALEXANDER HACKE
IN BERLIN

Danielle de Picciotto and Alexander Hacke are an American-German artist couple living in Berlin and New York. Painter, illustrator, filmaker and musician Danielle presented some of her drawings and images of the couple's latest tours and performances at our cosy PKN Haiti in Berlin. This presentation was a first debut of Alexander Hacke and Danielle de Picciotto's latest song called "Ballad Of The Lonely Fish". With Alexander being the lead guitarist of the legendary industrial rock & Avant-garde band Einst├╝rzende Neubauten, we were extremely honored to have such a "piece of music history" as guests in our humble home. www.hacke.org www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Einst%C3%BCrzende_Neubauten www.danielledepicciotto.com

Liegewiese

BY RYO BORDINI CHIKUSHI
IN BERLIN

Ryotaro Bordini Chikushi opened PKN Haiti in Berlin with a heartwarming presentation about the "Liegewiese", a very large lounger he re-designed and built himself in homage to the original custom made piece his Italian father invented during Ryotaro's childhood. A presentation about heritage. It was great to see how the guests fell in love with this piece of furniture (which they actually lounged on all together) after they heard the whole story about it. www.bordinichikushi.net

Reconnecting to the Universe

BY KINGA KIELCZYNSKA
@ VOL 16 ON DEC 15, 2009

Kinga Kielczynska disguises her sculptures, graphic and performance art as a talk about "a secret cult, that is trying to reconnect to the universe". Having lost the togetherness of man and nature, Kinga travels to energetic locations with other "cult members" to perform rites and exercises to be one with nature. The fact that they steal a lamp from the hotel lobby to channel the sun's energy seems natural. Sensual, profound and ... funny!

Somewhere between dusk and dawn - a life around club music

BY MEGAN MANN
IN BERLIN

'Motivation Megan' rocked at the end of our Berlin Pecha Kucha for Haiti. When desperately asking around for presenters to jump in 3 days before the event was scheduled, it was her casual nonchalance and effortless promise to show some of her amazing photos that gave us organizers enough energy to pull it all through. A Guy Called Gerald-who Megan is working with-made some relaxing live music for Megan's photos from around the world.
