20 x 20 was back in town on January 21st. Pecha Kucha Night Amsterdam found a new home at Mediamatic at the Vijzelstraat 68. This was a very special edition again!
Pecha Kucha = Artists, designers, architects, fashiondesigners and others who want to share their ideas with the rest of the world in 20 images, for exactly 20 seconds. Every presentation takes 400 seconds which gives this club night a fascinating pace.
With presentations by Frédérik Ruijs (Visual Journalism), Willem Velthoven (Mediamatic), Kamiel Vorwerk, Arno de Jong/Kasper van Delft (JEUK), Matthijs Bouw (One Architecture), Sander Uitdehaag, Chris Collaris, Magda Malina, Jonmar van Vlijmen / Hanneke Kuijpers (Tussenland), Kuno Terwindt (RieTVeld) en Cocky Eek (Foam).
Music by the electric string quartet led by Rudolf Nottrot, and video by Merel Das.
People from all over the city flocked to Mediamatic BANK this night. It was so crowded, not everyone could get in! Visitors were surprised by mind blowing ideas and admired designs that made everybody jealous! For instance, artist Magda Malina presented her beautiful hats, capes and collars made of paper. Kuno Terwindt, producer of Rietveld TV, showed a bunch of funny films made by Rietveld students.
Pecha Kucha Night originated in Tokyo, and was thought of by Klein Dytham architects as a club night in the SuperDeluxe club. Pecha Kucha Night now happens worldwide in 164 cities! Check the Pecha Kucha website for information on upcoming events.
