Free public lecture by Jennifer Higgie: What’s So Funny?

December 8, 2011

 

* MELBOURNE

“Why haven’t jokes, humour, wordplay and satire in the art of the last century been taken seriously?”

  • Thursday 8 December 2011 – 6-7pm
  • Admission free

Federation Hall, Grant St, VCA, Southbank

“It’s as impossible (or unbearable) to imagine a life – and by association, art – without laughter as it is to imagine a life without air. Yet, despite some important exceptions, there has been a surprising lack of discussion around the role of jokes, humour, wordplay and satire in the art of the last century. This is a small attempt to redress that lack,” says Higgie.
