Cabinet 17: Laughter

Добавить в корзину
Book DescriptionAn uninhibited guffaw or a nervous giggle, a derisive snicker or the malign "bwahahaa" of the comic strip villain--each form suggests that laughter has many sources of inspiration. This issue of Cabinet addresses the cultural history of laughter through a sparkling mix of essays, interviews, and artist projects. Slavoj Zizek tells us what jokes can teach about Hegel; an interview with Simon Critchley shows philosophy's attempts to understand why laughter alters our understanding ofthe world; and a portfolio of artist-designed tickling machines commissioned for the issue provides us with joy of our own. The lustrous lineup of participants in the unthemed section includes: Steve Rowell and the Center for Land Use Interpretation (CLUI), Daniel Heller-Roazen, Jesse Lerner, Paul Lukas, Sven-Olov Wallenstein, Margaret Wertheim, and Robert Lang. Artists' projects by: Emily Jacir, Marco Maggi, Michael Rakowitz, Craig Kalpakjian, and Robert Bowen. Edited by Sina Najafi.

Essays by Jesse Lerner, Paul Lukas, Steve Rowell, Daniel Heller-Roazen, Sven-Olov Wallenstein, Margaret Wertheim and Slavoj Zizek. Paperback, 7.75 x 9.75 in./112 pgs / Illustrated throughout.
