Humorous Disruptions Colloquium: Laughter and Technologies of Disruption in Feminist Film and Media

Coming soon on Friday, October 16th and Saturday, October 18th, a colloquium called Humorous > Disruptions is taking place at Concordia University. The event is an in-depth exploration of the way humour is used within feminist media theories and practice, and it is open to the public – so if you’re in Montréal that weekend, do check this out.

The colloquium will explore the diverse possibilities humour offers as a technology, representational practice, and tool for renewing dialogues with feminisms in all their manifestations today.

In addition to the twelve artists and scholars who will be speaking during the colloquium (full schedule available here on their website), there will also be a public exhibition of works that bring together a diverse collection of videos, animated images, and online games, registering affective and humorous engagements with race, gender, cybernetics, and the body.

The exhibition will feature works by:

  • Copenhagen Game Collective (Ida Marie Toft, Andrea Hasselager, Sabine Harrer and Raimund Schumacher)
  • Erin Gee and Kai Cheng Thom
  • Kara Stone
  • Larose S. Larose
  • Peter Lu & Lea Schönfelder
  • Skawennati
  • Sophie Houser and Andrea Gonzales

The exhibition will take place on Friday 7:00pm – 9:00pm, October 16th 2015 in EV 6.735, SGW Campus, Concordia University, 1515 Ste Catherine Street, Montréal.

Concordia University’s downtown campus is accessible by metro (Guy-Concordia) and public bus (#24 Sherbrooke, #165 Côte-des-Neiges, #747 René-Lévesque).
