Don’t Smile

Vom Humor der Kunst (German)

Humour is expressed in art largely by the overlapping of linguistic and visual levels, puns, logic being turned on its head, or by the reflection upon one’s own system of understanding. Humour is created through the meeting of different worlds and value systems, everyday realities and ideas or by the removal of objects from their normal frame of reference.
“Don’t Smile” traces the paths of humour, with ironic and erudite comments on its systems. The contemporary artists presented evoke an atmospheric narrative, complemented by exemplary 20th-century art – you are expressly requested to laugh!
