Gallery talks — 10 Jun 2020
The exhibition Nam June Paik – The Future is Now gives an overview of the work of Nam June Paik (1932, Korea - US, 2006), one of the most visionary and influential pioneers of early video art. His work is multidisciplinary, experimental, innovative and playful, and of great influence to the generations that followed him. Paik was early to recognize the future impact of mass media and coined the term ‘electronic highway’, thus predicting the future of communication in the internet age. As Paik related art to technology, and East to West, he reflected on the influence of technology on globalization, and with that on our daily lives.
