After we posted 13 Disturbing Pieces of Art from History , several readers pointed out that none of the works were created by female artists. So, here are 13 more disturbing pieces of art, and they’re all created by women. 1.

Written by Imane Elfilali Vesna Faassen (NL, 1987) is a photography and sculpture student at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp and is selected as one of the students of Dutch and Belgium Art Academies to show her work at the BredaPhoto International Photo Festival (13 September – 21 October). This years theme of the photo festival is the ‘homo empathicus’. BredaPhoto seeks to go beyond today’s feelings of frustration, alienation and discontent in the financial and economic crisis. This so-called ‘homo empaticus’ is the opposite of the ‘homo economicus’, who merely values his environment in terms of individual gain. A new and caring human being emerges from the consuming and selfish world.
