participatory performance

gallery senatorium, IPA performance festival, Istanbul, Turkey, 24-09-2013



International Performance Art Association Istanbul invited visiters to take part in the performance Democratic Kumpir by Marieke Warmelink.


Together with the audience the King exchanged visions on building a new democracy and re-designed the future through the traditional Turkish dish 'kumpir'.


In may 2013, during Month of Performance Art Berlin, Marieke Warmelink was crowned as king of a new network; Network of New Humanism.


The ‘NNH’ stands for three basic principles; equality, freedom and respect. The role of the King is to enhance, support and develop alternative forms of governance.

The King fosters an understanding of cultural unity between different nations.
