> DESCRIPTION

Nam June Paik was a media artist, who invented a new art medium, but above all, a great performance artist. For Paik, who extended his territory from music to visual art, performance was a place of freedom where he can meet audiences face to face, transcending traditional art genres. 
It was through performance that he showed radicalism of breaking the musical instrument and exposing body, as well as a philosophical reflection to search for the connection between humans and technologies.

 In celebration of the exhibition  by the 2012 Nam June Paik Art Center Prize winner, this special exhibit sheds new light on Nam June Paik’s performance. This will provide an opportunity to see how Paik’s diverse works ranging from videos and other materials that recorded his performances, happenings on the street, to performances conducted to make a video have affected today’s video artists focusing on the body and movement including Doug Aitken.
