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. A roundtable discussion with three of Paik’s own artistic collaborators and statements by contemporary artists 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. Melissa Chiu is museum director and senior vice president of global arts and cultural programs and Michelle Yun is curator of modern and contemporary art, both at Asia Society, New York.”
