From Siberia to Texas: Uncovering My Family’s Immigration Story One Recipe at a Time

BY MARY KALTENBERG
@ VOL 33 ON MAY 22, 2017

Mary Kaltenberg best introduces her story herself:

"It started during a blizzard storm the first week I arrived back in the United States early 2016. As an activity for my mom and I during this cold snowy day, we gathered recipes and started compiling them into a cohesive cookbook. I asked questions about the origination of the recipe and through each recipe lived a different story. Translating and transcribing developed into a documentation of our family history, rich of funny, suspenseful and adventurous stories. One recipe at a time I uncovered the story of my Jewish, Russian, Polish family - how they became a family, survived in Siberia, were deported and stripped of citizenship and the humor of eventually adapting to American culture."

Creative Conservation

BY DAVID WOODCOCK
@ VOL 20 ON SEP 24, 2019

Interventions to the form and use of existing buildings are inevitable, as is the need for change. Preservationists “manage change wisely,” and as such are really Conservationists.  Creativity is as essential to heritage conservation as it is to the creation of new work. Indeed, it is arguable that to be a curator of built heritage as well as a creator of interventions requires greater skill and insight.

Being an Independent Farmer in Central Texas, Wooden Buildings in Ostrava, and a Teaser Video from PKN Trnava

Presentations Linda Perez was born and raised in San Antonio. Over the course of her life, she has cleaned hominid fossils and taught secondary school in Kenya, done research at Harvard University and conducted a health care survey in the Andes Mountains, helped initiate sustainable agriculture and rural businesses in Zambia and assisted in HIV/AIDS awareness & prevention in Swaziland. Since 1993, she has overseen the development of a herd of Beefmaster cattle on her 300-acre L&M Ranch, 40 minutes south of San Antonio. Her presentation (from PKN San Antonio Vol. 6) focuses on her life as an independent, organic farmer in the heart of Texas. This presentation (in Czech, from PKN Ostrava Vol. 8) contains stories about wooden buildings that were realised in the Czech Republic by Martin Rajnis and his students. The buildings are inspired by traditional dwellings found in many parts of the world, that are friendly to the environment and, for the most part, very cheap. Martin also points out the bureaucratic system that affects Czech building policies. Posters Today's addition to the Tumblr blog comes in the form of a trio of posters for the upcoming PKN that's set to happen on October 26 in Orlando -- although V6 appears on the poster, this is in fact the series' Vol. 7, and you'll find the full list of presenters on the official event page. Video Today we have a great video teaser to share for the upcoming PKN Trnava Vol. 5, which will be part of the Grape Festival, one of the biggest music festivals in Slovakia.   Calendar Today (August 22) you can catch the following two events: PKN Cairns Vol. 5 and PKN Durban Vol. 8. Tomorrow, you have the following three PKNs to choose from: PKN Edinburgh Vol. 19, PKN San Antonio Vol. 7, and PKN Vladimir Vol. 7.

“The idea is to introduce the movement of peoples between Asia and the rest of the world.” Curator Aric Chen takes us on a tour of the under-construction M+ Museum of Visual Culture (to be completed late 2017) in Hong Kong, and the exhibition he has put together of numerous architectural works in the form of model and drawings. In “Building M+” from PKN Hong Kong Vol. 19 Aric demonstrates the way by which the exhibition conveys the processes of architectural design, places the M+ construction within history, and surveys unrealised and failed construction plans.
