Hangama Amiri

Kabul women art

Drawing from conversations with aunts, cousins, and friends still located in Kabul, Hangama explores the spaces that women have been limited to. These intimate, domestic spaces depicted take on increased significance given the numerous new restrictions women are currently facing under the Taliban rule. Private homes become spaces to grieve, to support, and to ultimately plan for an uncertain future.
