Berlin Laughter Project
Wed, Sep 7–Thu, Sep 15, 2011
Laughter is the best medicine. This the central idea of Laughter Yoga. The physical motion of laughing, even simulated, creates real laughter which strengthens the immune system, diminishes pain and reduces stress. In this project Orlando Britto Jinorio adopts this principle and provides the urban space of Berlin with “laughter meridians”. During ten interventions at central public locations, visitors are invited to laugh along and test the contagious effects of laughter.
Curator: Orlando Britto-Jinorio (born in Las Palmas, Gran Canaria, lives in Santander, Spanien)
Artists: Norbert Francis Attard (lives and works in Malta and Berlin), Simone Eisler (lives and works in Australia)
