Pedro Reyes: The People's UN (pUN) brings together citizen representatives of the 193 member states of the United Nations for mock assemblies and performances which reference the Queens Museum of Art's building's history of hosting the General Assembly of the UN between 1946-1950. pUN will be presented as a counterforce to the UN. Reyes will employ alternative negotiation techniques drawn from radical theater, psychology, marriage counseling, and corporate management consulting as opposed to traditional diplomacy to address foreign relations issues. Humorously format of the UN - caucuses, plenaries, simultaneous translation - pUN will entertain but also inform, and the objects and documents produced will be delivered to the UN in a culminating event. pUN will include both private and public performance sessions under the new massive central skylight.
