The New World Embassy: Rojava is a stateless embassy that represents, through cultural means, the ideals of “stateless democracy” developed by Kurdish communities of the autonomous region of Rojava, northern-Syria. The embassy is conceived and designed by Studio Jonas Staal in collaboration with the Democratic Self-Administration of Rojava, and takes the form of a temporary installation in Oslo. Through assemblies and public debate it will present the cultural and political ideals of this new autonomous region. The aim of the project is to rethink non-state models of political representation through art, as well as to engage a large public in the unique cultural and political ideals being developed in this war-torn region.
