"She, a cathedral" by the artist Niki de Saint Phalle, 1966. This exhibition was curated by the Swedish Pontus Hulten. A strong evidence of irreverence from the art scene at that days

Sex and humor/sex and taboo:

Humor is one of those things that can’t be defined, but is a feeling just like love.

The basis of humor is a mixture between the tragic and the comic. Frequently the humor addresses issues related to sex in Contemporary Art. Sex has been twisted over millennia by moralistic and puritans, who have insisted on pointing this out as something evil, dirty or even grotesque. When art deals with “sex theme” from the humor field, rebels against the censorship and forbidden.  Humor can find a balance between smiles and tears, and is a way of thinking and responding to an oppressive situation. Contemporary art demonstrates how -after centuries of history- “humorous art” is a perfect way to infiltrate scabrous (sex) affairs, as an exhaust valve.
