Onomatopee 37: Laughing Prohibited!

Erwin Wurm
Artists' Books
15 × 20 × 1 cm

This publication states clearly: there is no reason to laugh at all. Is there any (artistic) freedom of speech left after the debates on the Danish cartoons and the AEL counter-cartoons? Should you laugh about the works of these producers, than you are not sincere. Is there the legacy of Theo van Gogh still fertile? We need to concentrate and to focus in order to ask these fundamental questions. To be able to do so, we need clarity and parameters. Therefore, as a start: do not laugh!

With contributions by Anthony Kleinepier, Atelier van Lieshout, Bas van Beek, Erwin Wurm, Daniel Eatock, Jorre Van Ast, Heim Steinbach, Helmut Smits, Marti Guixe, Oooms, Atelier Ted Noten and Lara de Greef.

Edited by Freek Lomme.
