It has become really rare to appreciate a work of art just by looking at it – by realising the formal choices underlying it and what sort of perception results from them. You do not need any additional knowledge to do that, you do not have to contribute an already defined political viewpoint or a specific interest in a topic. All you need is the readiness to engage with it, something that is, in fact, on your part a sort of faith: that art can be sufficient unto itself.
