Another project in which people tell their stories. This time in Afghanistan. “In Search of the Truth (The Truth Booth) is an installation comprised of a touring, portable, inflatable ‘Truth Booth’ that was launched in 2011 at the Galway Arts Festival (IRL). The exterior is iconically shaped like a giant cartoon speech bubble with the word ‘TRUTH’ boldly printed on the side. The interior acts much like a photo booth, but serves to compile 2 minute long video responses from the public. Once seated inside they will then be invited to record their opinions and thoughts as they finish the statement: “The truth is…”.

The Truth Booth is an art project by Cause Collective artists Ryan Alexiev, Jim Ricks, and Hank Willis Thomas. The tour originally started in Ireland then traveled in the US and in the summer of 2013 in Afghanistan. The stories collected there can be found under the name of I Hear You Afghanistan and are co-produced by Paradox and Free Press Unlimited, in cooperation with Cause Collective.
“We see a lot but forget to listen. Share untold stories that matter. Spread the voices of Afghan men, women and children.”
