Inspired by New World Summit – Rojava parliament the Van Abbemuseum wants to experiment with new forms of public assembly within a public art museum. Considering the multiple moments of crisis in traditional, western democratic states, the museum parliament seeks to widen and diversify the platforms within which stated and stateless humans can act. Alongside the parliament, an exhibition documents the process of its conceptualisation and visual design. For the period of at least a year, this new facility in the museum will be programmed by the Rojavan diaspora in the Netherlands and Europe as well as by the Van Abbemuseum and Staal’s team. It will introduce audiences to the philosophy of Rojava’s stateless democracy, its challenges and achievements, its art, culture, music, and poetry. It will be a space for teaching and practicing democracy anew.
