Women’s Rights ARE Human Rights, Women's Freedom is Equality for Everyone.

  • The work reflects the artist’s thoughts on cultural extremes and female repression. Kunz enjoys working on projects that are politically or socially oriented, especially potentially controversial projects that are “meaningful and may be open for debate.”

  • As a Jew, fear of Arabs was hard wired into me from an early age. After 9/11 when more Muslim women began to show their solidarity by deciding to wear hajib, I was very disturbed and fearful. I have learned a lot from my work. I hope it will also make others think about this and realize that we must communicate and not be fearful or put our own judgments on others. Brenda Oelbaum

  • One of the materials Rahbar uses most frequently in her work is flags. She dislikes the way flags divide and separate people, creating artificial borders and isolation and making people feel they are different from others in distant countries.

Made from 50 yards of black silk, Homes for the Disembodied represents the displacement of the Palestinian people from their homeland. The connected nature of the dresses represents the shared misfortune of the Palestinians and their solidarity as one people; the emptiness of the clothing represents the absence of the Palestinians from their homes; and the use of the female form is a way to honor the strength of the Palestinian women who must carry on in difficult times and unjust circumstances.

Helen feels that her background in the Middle East allows her to approach the experiences she has in America, in a unique way, remaining an observer of both the Arab and American cultures.
