Political gestures and civic actions are at the center of the artistic practice of Tania Bruguera, who recently announced her candidacy for President of her native Cuba. In this video, Bruguera addresses some of the ongoing themes and issues of socially engaged artists today.

She touches upon some of her most recent works, such as Immigrant Movement International (2010–ongoing), developed in collaboration with Queens Museum in New York and Arendt Institute of Artivism in Havana. Her works are presented as examples and case studies of new practices that involve the artist in novel relationships with institutions and civic society.

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.
