Interesting list, part of the problem I feel there is with definitions of "art" is not just the entirely subjective nature of something but the separation of art and art world. In the case of the latter an in circle of people decide what is good art and what is bad and stick it in galleries. I find this a bit of a conflicting thing for one group to decide what is "art" when it is so subjective as to have very little meaning beyond "I think this falls under the category of art for me because..."
Indeed, and I think Derrida had similar sentiments too, along the lines of art determined by the art-world, determined by art being circular.

I should have also attributed some thoughts in the discussion about intention to Barthes’ “Death of the Author” ideas, too.
