The premise of the project was to bring European cultural worlds into refugee centers, and to address the clash of cultures.
UFA - Upset Feminists of Afghanistan is a group of feminist men from Afghanistan who demand the impossible: the abolition of capitalist patriarchy, the feminization of politics, economy and culture, a new Afghan feminist etiquette. Their strategy: to use critical theory and puppetry to achieve the total upheaval of phallic conditions.
