This fully illustrated catalogue on the celebrated progenitor of video art, Nam June Paik (1932–2006), brings together a host of scholars, artists, and Paik’s own collaborators to illuminate the work of this innovative artist. An essay by curator Michelle Yun takes readers through Paik’s highly original career, providing insight into his radical and witty experiments with technology, especially in relation to the body, which he viewed as vital platforms for the future of art, science, and popular culture. Scholars David Joselit and John Maeda contribute texts examining the artist’s interest in new media and popular culture. A roundtable discussion with three of Paik’s own artistic collaborators and contemporary artists’ statements shed light on the collaborative process and Paik’s enduring influence on artistic practice today. Drawing on the newly established Nam June Paik Archive at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, this book also features never-before-published primary sources that highlight Paik’s prescient attitude towards the integration of increasingly indispensable technologies into modern life.
