In general, Ralf Homann's work deals with spatial concepts and with such of the media while also reflecting upon their interdependency. He is interested in activating the public space by means of performative practices.

In his works, which are constantly negotiating the boundaries of art and politics, he investigates knowledge – its hidden narrative or invisible design – to engender new perspectives on reality and its representations. While operating in various media forms, a strong series of his works focuses on radio. He also applies sound or transmissions to his sculptures thereby folding physical and digital spaces.

Livin' in Gomerica: tales from the World's Biggest Band

@ VOL 24 ON NOV 09, 2017

Were The Gomers the world's biggest band? They made some noise in the late 1980's with a few songs appearing on the national Dr. Demento radio show. Over time, they realized they knew over 2,000 cover songs and a live karaoke band was born. The spent the next 12 years sharing the stage with over ten thousand lead singers who (usually) lived out their rock and roll dreams three blissful rockin' minutes at a time. (That is a big band.) Andy Wallman was the first chair tambourine player for The Gomers and will take you on the inside of what it was like to be Livin' in Gomerica.

Life Between Umbrellas: Designing a Rain-Friendly City

@ VOL 48 ON MAR 21, 2019

Public spaces – the parks, plazas, and streets that comprise half of Vancouver’s land-base – are the connective tissue that ties the city together. Public space is a canvas for urban life – a stage for social and cultural activities, a marketplace of local economic activity, a forum for democratic engagement. And yet, for much of the year, our spaces are challenged by rain and inclement weather. With even heavier rains in the future, how can we ensure that Vancouver’s public spaces remain vibrant people places all year round?

Ravi Jetshan

Ravi Jetshan (Ravior) has been a jewelry maker since 1982, and he presented some of his work at the recent PechaKucha Night in Mauritius Vol. 2. That city's organizer, Stephen Ng, writes this about Ravi: Volume 2 was certainly highlighted by Ravior, a jewelry making company led by Ravi Jetshan since 1982 -- "or" means gold in French and in Creole, Mauritius' very own dialect that Ravi uses when naming some of his collections. One thing you'll soon realize with Ravi is that he really holds a lot of affection towards his culture, his tradition, his country, and he perfectly translates all of that through his designs. Add to this the fact that he has traveled the world and speaks six languages -- the audience at Vol. 2 could well understand how the man delivers such great creativity, innovation, and attention to detail. "The success of Ravior is essentially the product of fine-tuned teamwork by groomed professionals equipped with multiple skills reinforced by continuous advanced training. Rigour in craft and skill is the key to quality production for each and every jewellery piece, all this driven by professional and civic ethics." This was taken from, where more of his collections can be viewed. At the start of his presentation this is what Ravi had to say in Creole: "Ene le monde sans bijou, c'est ene ene le monde sans lamour." Literally, a world without jewelry is a world without love...

The World's Best City When It Rains

Everyone loves water that falls -- as long as it falls at the right place and at the right time.  In this edition of Presentation of the Day (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 100), Jesper Larsson turns one city's "weakness" into an opportunity. He tells us of Gothenburg, Sweden's upcoming 400-year anniversary. Preparing for this, the city invited different people to come up with ideas regarding how Gothenburg could make an international mark in the years leading up to the commemoration. Jesper goes over the deluge of benefits rain and water provide us with, and discusses how he believes the city could leverage its high-rainfall percentage to benefit all those living and visiting Gothenburg.

PechaKucha is Grand and Rapid in Grand Rapids

The latest edition of PechaKucha night in the rip-roarin' Michigan city of Grand Rapids (Vol. 6) came and went, and a quick recap of the night was recorded in The Rapidian. Here's a small tidbit from the article: Humorous and serious, honest and ultimately real, PKGR provides neutral ground, an environment where any one of us can share our passions, our stories or a little bit of ourselves. PKGR also gives the audience the opportunity to discover the unknown, rethink the familiar and to get lost in the story. Because when it really comes down to it, life is all about the stories. We couldn't have said it better ourselves. Check out the full article here.

PKN Weimar #4 Radio Lotte

On the brink of summer. Between two World Cup games. Squeezed in Radio Lotte Weimar, the fourth Pecha Kucha Night! What a delight! The songs Panon hideung, Personal Jesus performed by the locally famous Limona Jam reminded us of the great PKN #3. The three musicians reached the peak with I feel good! which moved some of the audience towards a loud dance in the bar area of the hospitable Lesesaal at Goethe Platz 12. The great photos of the evening by Simona Zajancauskaite are streamed here: During the evening, for the third time we hosted our good neighbor from Erfurt, Barbara Kuntze, who just a week later succesfuly launched the first PechaKucha Night in Erfurt! Huge congratulations, and let's rock Thuringia together! Straight after the concert we received five involving presentations, each of them charged with a slightly scientific focus:  Christiane Lewe, a PhD at the Media Faculty of the Bauhaus University presented her fascinating research on the genealogy of facebook. Clarissa (first left) except for enjoying the nicest bar tender in the world (Sara and Carl) in a two-presenters presentation shared her perception of the Merketal dormitory juxtaposed with the impressions of the Jakobsplan by Simona Z. The travelling architect Joshua Raff enriched our evening by his story on learning Chineese by the means of sharp hand drawings, while Carlos Sandoval of Mexico took us into his hipster photo story charged with explosive sense of humour. The evening was topped with the brilliant trio of Fabulous Jakobsplan who invited us all to participate in their participatory research about the only scyscraper of Weimar - the Jakobsplan dormitory. Who knows where will we end up in September! Thanks to all for your great support and see you next time!

Raise the Roof

  Architecture and design forms an integral part of our lives. Our physical space influences us in numerous ways and quiet often dictates our moods and behaviour. It has the power to define a city, a society, a country, a culture. It can motivate us, and even subjugate us. In this volume of PechaKucha Nights we will be talking about how architecture helps us express and define ourselves. If you are interested in presenting, send in your ideas and a few sample images on latest by 27th February 2018. For details click :
