This issue utilises creative works as mediums to understand the relationship between humour, cultural diversities and social issues. Esse Menino discusses anger as the underlying emotion behind humour and in turn, uses humour as way to let go. We explore how humour act as a coping mechanism. Through ‘Nobody Series’, a series of art by Restu Ratnaningtyas, we witness how humour is a reflection of hopelessness. We question how humour can heal us. Cem A., the artist behind the art meme page @freeze_magazine, presents humour’s ability to criticise. We invite you to see NYC from Poupay’s lens and sense of humour. By looking at the works of Nilbar Gures, Zeyno Pekunly, Fatma Belkic, Onur Gokmen and Yusa Yalcintas, we unpack their sharp and incisive sense of humour reflecting on the opacity and intractability of widespread sociocultural change in Turkey. We explore how humour can challenge power relations.
