About This Book

Nam June Paik (19322006) was one of the most innovative artists of the 20th century. His influence is still felt in music, the visual arts, film, and video.

Extensively illustrated, with extracts from interviews and reminiscences from many who were close to Paik during his lifetime, this is the most thorough and illuminating exploration of Paik's legacy yet published.

Born in South Korea, Paik began his career as a composer in Japan and in Germany, where he met John Cage and collaborated with Joseph Beuys. Moving to New York in 1964, he formed relationships with a number of artists associated with the Fluxus group, particularly the cellist Charlotte Moorman, who became one of his closest collaborators. He continued to experiment in performance and video art, famously using manipulated televisions as elements in sculptural works, creating robot sculptures and installations.

An international range of contributors trace the course of Paik's life and career, exploring his connections with key figures in the 20th-century avant-garde, his theoretical writings, and his lasting influence.
