Kabul: Constitutions investigates the question of how our imaginaries of the architectures of democracy overlap with the real spaces where the structures of the state are materially and politically invested and contested. Viewers participating in an interactive video installation and accompanying web project are placed within the particular space and moment of the Constitutional Loya Jirga, the tribal council or national assembly of winter 2003-04, where Afghanistan's representatives debated, amended and ultimately adopted their new constitution.
