Viewing art and being involved in art have healing powers. It is basically derived from arts therapy, which includes other creative therapies such as drama therapy and music therapy. Back in literature the most famous version of arts therapy is depicted in One Thousand and One Nights where storytelling saves Shahrazad (Scheherazade) and heals King Shahryar. In a more limited sense, art has the same effect through empathy.
The works by Nicole Majer (Germany), Saša Makarová (Austria-Slovakia), Masumi Igarashi (Japan_Germany), Hanne Laland (Norway), and Natalja Nouri (Latvia-Germany) represent different forms of visual art where the viewers can empathize with.
