Hahaha. The humor of Art, a collaboration between KANAL-Centre Pompidou, the Centre Pompidou and ING Belgium, was one of Brussels’ flagship exhibitions in 2021.
Re-opening after 18 months of closure, the ING Art Center presents more than 200 works, selected by Nicolas Liucci-Goutnikov, curator of the Centre Pompidou and Anne Petre, head art curator at ING Belgium. The eclectic and wide-ranging collection – separated into eight themes – reveals the overlooked role of humour in major art movements from the 19th century to the present day.
Klub is used in all its capabilities to its full extent: from straight body copy, visually-loud chapter openers and for typographical hierarchies like footnotes. Throughout the catalogue Klub 04 Medium, Klub 06 Bold, Klub 08 Medium as well as all styles of Klub 11 are paired with ITC Century. The result is powerful and strong design on the basis of a strict book architecture. In addition the catalogue comes with a booklet with English translations in which the typographic motive is repeated.
