From the caricatures of Honoré Daumier, to the ready-mades of Marcel Duchamp, the puns of the Dadas, the videos of Dalí, to the works of John Baldessari and Marcel Broodthaers, humour has been a powerful tool in art, especially to be critical of itself. This catalogue will explore the humour of art through its different variations: toys and games, hoaxes, puns, jesters... A humorous essay by curator Nicolas Liucci- Gutnikov introduces the subject. An anthology of philosophical and historical texts puts humour as a tool of criticism in context, from Pascal, Montaigne, to Baudelaire and Nietzsche... Finally, some humorous quotes Dada and surrealist artists and writers punctuate the book.

The book is a French/Dutch bilingual edition, with a complimentary booklet in English.

Nicolas Liucci-Goutnikov is curator at the Centre Pompidou, Musée national d'art moderne, Paris (Rouge, Grand Palais 2018, Prix Marcel Duchamp, Centre Pompidou, 2019, among others)
