Tate – Unlock Art: Tamsin Greig – What’s so funny? – 2014

Bringing the funny: Tamsin Greig finds the best jokes in art

A brief history of comedy in art: Tamsin Greig examines Duchamp’s toilet humour, Sarah Lucas’s meat and two veg, a pipe that isn’t a pipe, painstaking reconstructions of Buster Keaton’s slapstick stunts and more, as part of the Unlock Art series. Ultimately it’s about laughing in the face of death. And life.
