Humor & art

In what shape does humor occur in contemporary art? How does it behave and how does humor function within the artistic field? How does humor assume its role as a host within contemporary art?

Humor is a delicate topic to investigate. In the investigation into how humor can manifest itself in art, no harm can be caused to the subject itself. That is why all methods of research and their results will be realized in an active way. The research shows itself in the active and public artistic practice of the researcher as an artist. All actions in connection with this research and the results thereof are recorded as active artistic work.
