Caroline Lillian Schopp: Lachkrampf/Fit of Laughter

November 9, 2022 at 6:00 pm until 7:30 pm

 Professor Caroline Lillian Schopp, History of Art, delivers an undergraduate talk “Lachkrampf/Fit of Laughter: Renate Bertlmann Performing Bertolt Brecht & the Figure of the Pregnant Bride.” This talk introduces the art of Renate Bertlmann by way of her discomfiting performances as a “pregnant bride.” If these can be seen, as the artist suggests, as a restaging of Bertolt Brecht’s comedy Die Hochzeit (The Marriage, 1919), then what role does laughter play in Bertlmann’s work – and what kind of feminist gesture might be involved?
