"What kind of an image induces laughter?"

"What kind of an image induces laughter? There is certainly no simple answer for this question, as a universal viewer does not exist.  It could be an ironic, sarcastic, ridiculing or even a grotesque image." This is how the exhibition "Examples of Laughter in Art", on display at the City Art Gallery, was introduced by Maša Levičnik in the Osmi dan TV show.

"The Italian author Luigi Pirandello once said that humour is the mixture of tragedy and comedy, therefore nothing is more serious than is funny." You can watch the whole Osmi dan piece by following this link (in Slovenian).
