Only a Joke Can Save Us

Only a Joke Can Save Us is a group exhibition that brings together 9 international artists, which is the humor they explore is a kind of turbulent world. To understand or question one’s own way-analyze each person’s desires, fantasies, frustrations, and will-and draw inspiration from familiar and even absurd things. The artworks on display present ridiculed political figures, mediocre sons, people dancing in the flood, playful Instagram filters, etc., in the hope of arousing laughter from the audience and providing comfort in the dark, but at the same time disturbing and transcending social norms create new resistance forces in an erratic era.

In times of crisis and trauma, joking and laughter are combined, becoming a way to explore new concepts of unity, criticality, and justice.
