'All About Laughter: Humor In Contemporary Art' is an exhibition that explores the role of laughter in contemporary art. The immense variety of value-systems existing in today's society is reflected in the sheer variety of the exhibits. Comprising four parts, and including works that make one laugh in addition to works that make one think about laughing, the exhibition brings together over 200 videos, photographs, installations and other works by 50 creators of contemporary art from around the world.

Artist biographies are provided in the present catalogue.
