“The border is a very difficult place to describe. Anything I say about it, I'll also say the exact opposite about it.”
In Borders Visualized from PechaKucha Night El Paso’s 11th Volume, speaker Kerry Doyle presents the mission of the Rubin Center for Visual Arts at UTEP with a selection of work from exhibitions over the first 10 years. Borders are meant to divide. As border tensions rise, artists –both performance and visual– have been creating works to represent the relationship between the bordering cities of El Paso and Ciudad Juarez. The Rubin Center now has a decade’s worth of stories to show and tell.

BY REUBEN WOODS
@ VOL 35
ON JUN 01, 2018
Dr. Reuben Woods is an art historian and writer. He wrote his doctoral dissertation on street art and graffiti in post-earthquake Christchurch. Reuben believes that graffiti and street art have played a central role in the city's recovery and renewal. As a post-graduate in the Art History and Theory Department, he seeks to engage a wider audience with the city's intriguing and evolving relationship with urban art by exploring the various narratives and personalities that form these diverse cultures. Reuben also contributes to the website Watch This Space and hosts guided tours of the city's urban art.
In this talk, Reuben reflects on Christchurch’s relationship with street art that has emerged following devastating earthquakes. He tells us how street art can have a significant impact on the built environment and how Christchurch is a space for artists to respond and react.

You can also find all Gothenburg presentations (in Swedish) on its YouTube channel. On April 24th, we arranged our Vol. 31 of PechaKucha Gothenburg with a great turnout! Annelie Hulthén used mobile photos to show some of the backsides of the life of a politician. Our new city architect showed aerial photos of Gothenburg to show how much space is wasted on cars instead of human beings. Peter Korn told us about digging and how to plant exotic plants on stony Swedish hillsides. Sushi chef José Seruda spoke about "omakase" and his idea of Scandinavian sushi using locally produced fish and seafood. Siv Burell talked about the language Esperanto which celebrates 125 years this year. Klara Hansson spoke about perma culture and what's edible within the city centre. Jeanette Fagerström told the story that led up to her opening a sewing machine café in Gothenburg (similar to an internet café but with sewing machines instead of computers). Helena Andersson, Sebastian Popescu & Evelina Valtersson finished of the evening with a presentation about their project "Bostadsrotation" (residential rotation) where people change housing and routines with another person for a couple of days. In the break, Klara Hansson and her friends served up a 'Kokoro salad' based on wild city plants such as Garlic-mustard, Celandine, Common wood sorrel, Dandelion, Sorrel, Lady's Mantle, Daisy, Rowan Leaf, Ground elder and last but not least Lovage. They also served fresh natural birch sap. In this walkthrough video during the beer break, organizer Jesper Larsson tries out the birch sap and talks to former presenter Sebastian Näslund about it. We totally forgot to celebrate it, but the last presentation of the evening was actually #300 since we started! Links Looking for some interesting PechaKucha-related articles? We've got you covered.

PechaKucha Night Vol. 1 in Tegus
Greetings from Tegucigalpa, or we locals call it, Tegus! In 3 very short weeks we will be launching the first PechaKucha Night ever in our Central American country of Honduras. We have just revealed our amazing poster designed by the very talented designer Alicia Medina, a cool lady whose experience includes illustration, branding, and art direction among other things. The poster design is based on popular local handicrafts that are a symbol of Honduras - handpainted clay roosters in bright, happy colors. During this first volume of PechaKucha Tegus we'll be sharing stories from chefs, yoginis, actors, film directors, artists, street artists and even beer brewers. It's bound to be a vibrant mix of ideas and interesting people on this warm summer night. We'll keep you all posted on how our very first night goes. We're really excited and we think it'll be a total hit. Til next time!
