Programming:

Women are often seen as property, under the shared ownership of family and community and  become the collateral damage in case of conflict.This theme seeks to uncover shamed and hidden narratives and thus radically work at the notion of self-hood of women in this part of the world.

Public loss and grieving, and public cohesion have become events that in the modern world are often the result of terror and the fear of terror attacks.

This theme tracks and nails down the havoc and destruction wreaking mechanisms, and is about making sweeping and combing operations in the underbellies of terror.
