This article investigates the concern of the European avant-garde with otherness and examines how the avant-garde uses artistic techniques from other cultures as a specific form of humour. It deals with the primitive, the savage, so much admired and imitated by the avant-garde, mainly to challenge bourgeois and mainstream culture. The article first looks at the concept of the savage cannibal, followed by chapters on dance and savage language. Particular attention is paid to the question whether, how and with what intentions the avant-garde tried to be humorous or funny.
