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.
