When we stand in front of an art object, we can respond in a wide range of emotions: wonder and awe, delight and joy, anger to the point of rage, sadness to the point of sorrow and grief, anxiety and fear, excitement, or serenity. Our experience can be one of pleasure or agitation, even disgust. Yet, disgust is not a word I have associated with art.
What makes a work of art disgusting? If it's disgusting, is it still art?
Is there artwork that you consider disgusting? What about it disgusts you?
Is finding artwork disgusting any different from finding it beautiful or pleasing? What's the difference?
