Abstract
“Focus on the absurd figure of the “anti-hero” is then transplanted to Gotham City with geographer Deborah Knight’s paper on Christopher Nolan’s recent Batman film The Dark Knight (2008). This paper converses with some of the filmic, anti-art practices and landscapes encountered earlier in the collection, while emphasis on the character of the Joker as a trickster figure places this discussion squarely in that of “Black Humour.” Architectural metaphors of the Joker’s scheming are illustrated throughout by reproductions of Knight’s collages as research tools”.
