The Frans Hals Museum | De Hallen Haarlem is staging the major exhibition HUMOR: 101 years of laughing at art in both venues. It illustrates how artists used humour as a source of inspiration. Since the coming of Dada in 1916, humour has played a major role in art, blowing a fresh new wind through the often serious and pompous art world. De Hallen Haarlem shows examples of humorous Dutch art—from Dada, Surrealism and Pop Art to Fluxus—along with humorous works from contemporary art. In the Frans Hals Museum the focus is on caricatures and parodies of famous works of art
