From March 15, 2019, 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT will be hosting an exhibition entitled “SENSE OF HUMOR”. Katsumi Asaba, an art director who continues to lead the times, will serve as exhibition director.


To Asaba, who has encountered many people and things in his journeys around the world, humor in one of most important senses in communication.
Asaba has spent years tickling the minds of people in his work as a graphic designer, and in directing this exhibition, he has gathered documents and found objects that have inspired him, along with the works of designers and artists who share his sense of humor and put them under a single roof.


From the valuable things, to that whose value has yet to be found, from the manmade to that which nature gave birth to, this exhibition aims to show that by looking at shapes and expressions of humor from across ages and borders, we can rediscover the humor that surrounds us in our day-to-day lives. The sense of humor could be called part of the essence of communication that is vital for design and creativity.
