Tuna Lies Tuna Truth, one of Valletta 2018 Foundation’s quirkier projects are in need of 20 unique people to be filmed eating! Here is a little synopsis of the project:

Sonja Stummerer and Martin Hablesreiter of the art and design atelier Honey & Bunny bring contemporary ethical and sustainable food-sourcing to the public in edgy and provocative ways. The truths, untruths, half-truths and conspiracy theories that surround the Maltese and Mediterranean fishing industry inspired them to create the Tuna Lies I Tuna Truth project. This artistic performance is part theatre, part food experience, a pop culture mash-up that’s stitched together from fake news items that play with truth, rumour, lie, and identity to provoke open discussion. In the end, a public event will finally bring the whole truth about tuna to the public… Or will it? When it comes to tuna on the Maltese Islands, not all is as it seems…
