New exhibition: Hahaha. The Humour of Art

From September 15, the new exhibition Hahaha. The Humour of Art will be on view at the ING Art Center, which is all about how humour took a definitive role in art and how it started an artistic revolution.

“Nothing is serious enough to take seriously,” Marcel Duchamp

The art world may be thought of as serious business, but in fact there are artists throughout the ages who can qualify as comics. From the middle of the First World War, artists started to make jokes with their art; A bottle of wine, a snow shovel, a sentence, a urinal… Who could have thought that they would be the start of an artistic revolution and completely change how we see art?
