JANI LEINONEN AT KUNSTAHUS ZUG, SWITZERLAND

Jani Leinonen is taking part in the exhibition The Comedy of Being – Art and Humour from Antiquity until Today at Kunsthaus Zug, Switzerland running through September 23, 2018 to January 6, 2019.

The Kunsthaus Zug is giving its visitors seven-league boots and sending them off through the history of humour in art. An in-house working group has spent the last six years collaborating with students and scholars to research the relationship between art and humour, going back to Ancient Greece, taking a detour through the Middle Ages to the Reformation, and on to the wealth of material on the topic composed in the last century up to the present day.

The Comedy of Being brings together over 300 works – loans from collections in Switzerland and Europe as well as the museum’s own holdings.
