Samsa, I agree that art is more than just visual aesthetics, it should evoke emotion too. However, the problem with a lot of abstract art is that it has to be explained in order to appreciate it, and for me that indicates it has little intrinsic worth.
The urinal one you posted is a good example - it isn't art unless accompanied by an explanation written by a complete wanker or by its presence in an art museum. Without those things it's just something you piss into.
