Ivo Nieuwenhuis investigates the working of satire, and poses the question of how this phenomenon functions as a cultural, medial, political and social mode of performance. By analysing satire, Nieuwenhuis attempts to map out in detail the issue of its potential social impact, and thereby better understand the working of satire in general.
