New World Embassy: Azawad

New World Embassy: Azawad explores the intersection of art, theory, and activism through the proposition of temporarily instituting an operational Azawadian embassy as an extraterritorial space of representation, negotiation, and international exchange. The project includes an intervention on BAK’s facade and an interior installation, accompanied by contributions from documentary filmmakers Rob Schröder and Gabriëlle Provaas.

Following a preview on 6–7 September, on 9 September 2014 at 19.00 hrs, Moussa Ag Assarid and Jonas Staal are joined for discussion at the inauguration of New World Embassy: Azawad by political scientist Jolle Demmers; politician Jasper van Dijk; independent war journalist Arnold Karskens; artist Mazou Ibrahim Touré; and diplomat Jeroen Zandberg; among others. The debate was moderated by former war correspondent and cultural journalist Raymond van den Boogaard.
