since photography and design are art, I am curious: what kind of art/design/architecture do you like? Do you have one or more favorite artists/styles?
I am an art historian and I am specialized on Old Masters and Netherlandish art. I used to be very specialized, e.g. I had little access to modern/contemporary art, architecture in general or Italian and southern European art. But since 5 or 10 years, my horizon appears to get wider and wider. Some time ago I worked on a project about Raphael (it was my choice) and I think I performed better than I expected. Recently I went to the Moderne Galerie in Saarbrücken and loved almost everything in it including the architecture. As far as architecture is concerned, in general I prefer architecture before 1850, but I do not dislike modern and contemporary architecture. In fact there are very few artists or styles that I dislike, e.g. Historism.
My experience is that almost everybody likes (or loves) art, at least some kind of it (even the most uneducated people). Although it is true that people who are mainly interested in technology, science, physics and math have less access to art than other people. But there is evidence that even some animals like art, especially birds.
So what about you? I am very curious about your feedback.
