Panel discussion: How much humor does art need?

TU, 07 06 2022, 7:00 pm


Even the philosopher Hannah Arendt appreciated the emancipatory potential of humor. But what role does it play in contemporary art? What strategies do artists use to harness the subversive power of laughter? And can we, in times of war and crises, lead „Schmäh“ with a clear conscience?

Katharina Brandl, artistic director of Kunstraum Niederoesterreich, philosopher Cornelia Mooslechner-Brüll and artist Anna Vasof will discuss these questions, hosted by Nina Schedlmayer, chief-editor of the Lower Austrian cultural magazine morgen.

The event is a cooperation of Kunstraum Niederoesterreich with morgen, whose current issue is dedicated to „Schmäh“.

We cordially invite you a and ask you to register until June 6 at: with the subject line "Humor in art".
