The History of The Democracy
ACT 2: THE PARLIAMENT IN BUDDINGE/IRAQ
A borderland between reality and fiction.
A theatre. Das Beckværk - the reactor in Buddinge, Copenhagen. 7 parlamentary sessions from 25 January - 15. February 2003.
Seeing the obvious connection between the architects visions in "The Parliament" and the visions of PNAC, Das Beckværk felt obliged to open the artwork and merge with the surrounding world.
Every Wednesday and Saturday the performance therefore was extended into a genuine world parliament, where Das Beckværk, in collaboration with the audience and invited experts tried to write a constitution for a world parliament.
