Citizens and Subjects: Practices and Debates is part of the Dutch contribution to the 52nd International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia, 2007. Taking the work Citizens and Subjects by Aernout Mik as its point of departure, Practices and Debates is a series of lectures, seminars, conversations and a master course envisioned as an extension of the Dutch Pavilion “back” to the Netherlands and to other sites of “practices” and “debates” invested in the urgent task of contributing to a new imaginary about the world.

The lecture series is developed by BAK, basis voor actuele kunst in collaboration with Utrecht University and its Studium Generale.

Museum as Parliament. The People’s Parliament of Rojava at the Van Abbemuseum

The Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven opens a space inspired by The People’s Parliament of Rojava, a project of the Democratic Self-Administration in Rojava, Northern-Syria, designed in collaboration with artist Jonas Staal and his New World Summit team. This project would not have been possible without the work of the New World Academy (2013–2016), co-founded by BAK, basis voor actuele kunst, Utrecht, and Staal.
