Is art just an expression? Should art be meaningful to the viewer? A piece of art must be beautiful? What is beauty? A piece of art should be understandable?

These questions and a lot more were debated in our last speaking corner by comparing pieces of art by Leonardo da Vinci, Marcel Duchamp, Antoni Tàpies or Francis Bacon and also we contrasted various artistic styles, like Gothic, Byzantine or Romanesque.
