The works shared a concern with the issues of the body and sexuality in the specific experiences of Armenian women artists. They articulate the body as sites for contestation of identity construction.
The aim of the program was to historicize WOW's [the Women-Oriented Women’s Collective (Armenian gay women group) - Unzipped: Gay Armenia] activities as well as contexualize them within the larger representational and identity discourses in Armenia.
