Philosophy of Disturbatory Feminist Art
Keywords:Femicides, Feminist Art, Disturbatory Art
In this paper I will show how contemporary feminist artists whose works concern femicides address three senses of the term “to disappear”. These works can be particularly disturbing, along the lines of Danto’s notion of disturbatory art, since these kinds of works use artistic means to unveil the social and subjective implications of gender crimes.
