What is Pecha Kucha?
Pecha Kucha is originally a Japanese presentation practice that was introduced by Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham. It is a presentation of several images (20 images x 20 seconds each), with an interpreter or volunteer who shares their inner thought of the image and their life experience. The first ever Pecha Kucha was held in Tokyo back in 2003 of February.
The creators of the Pecha Kucha Night, Astrid Klein, is a female German artist experienced with the various fields of photography, painting and visual arts. She was born in 1951 and was trained about four years at the Köln International School of Design.
