Pechakucha Presentations: Memorials that do Political Work

July 23, 2011, 7 p.m. – 9 p.m.

Mess Hall
6932 N. Glenwood

Ten speakers will present short presentations exploring the memorial form and some of its most interesting and relevant examples.

Pecha Kucha is a public lecture format invented in Japan by Klein Dytham architects as a way to offer many different creative perspectives in one evening, and to prevent each speaker from talking too much! Each speaker shows 20 slides with 20 seconds for each slide, a total of 6 minutes and 45 seconds per speaker. The slides move forward automatically, so there is no dilly-dallying.

The name (invented in Japan) is meant to signify the sound of conversation.

The goal is to think through the memorial form together, and to explore its most interesting or most successful iterations.
