Slapstick, Deadpan, Wit and Irony— The Double Act of Art and Comedy

Professor Mark Durden (University of South Wales)

The joke always has a healthy disrespect for structures and categories and, when allied with art, can become a very unruly and volatile impulse. In this talk, Durden will explore some of the salient themes and issues of his recent collaborative work with David Campbell on the comedic in art, as well as his longstanding work as part of the artist group Common Culture.
