Laughing In A Foreign Language

"Laughing in a Foreign Language explores the role of laughter and humour in contemporary art. In a time of increasing globalization, this international exhibition questions if humour can only be appreciated by people with similar cultural, political or historical backgrounds and memories, or whether laughter can act as a catalyst for understanding what you are not familiar with."
