1. Does " is interrogated" in the following content mean "is questioned and is undermined"?

2. Does the highlighted "as" refer to "the pleasures of the body"?

Text:

Clearly Lacan’s writing on the eye and the gaze is a development of the themes in his earlier essay ‘The Mirror-Stage’, which also posited fragmentation as being the other side of armoured reflection. However, it is important to note that the link between emptiness and horror clearly stems from fantasies about castration anxiety and phallic disempowerment, and cannot simply be applied to feminist-inspired art in which this paranoid gaze is interrogated to reveal the pleasures of the body as a complex, multi-sensory site of more fragmentary desires.

catttt1. Does " is interrogated" in the following content mean "is questioned and is undermined"?

Her "interrogate" is jargon. There is no definition of the ordinary word that would allow its use there. I do not know what she means by it. My impression is that the feminist art forces upon the viewer a re-evaluation of what might at first appear to be mere fear.

Yes.
