International Symposium ‘Gift of Nam June Paik 8’ Reanimating NJP: Nam June Paik’s Interfaces

2016.09.09(Fri) 11:00 ~ 18:00
Auditorium of Gyeonggi Provincial Museum
Organized and Hosted by Nam June Paik Art Center, Gyeonggi Cultural Foundation

The Symposium ‘Gift of Nam June Paik 8’ Reanimating NJP: Nam June Paik’s Interfaces will be held in the auditorium of Gyeonggi Provincial Museum on Friday 9 September, 2016. In a short essay written in 1972 and 1973, Nam June Paik summarized a key underlying idea of his cross-disciplinary, intermedia projects as follows: “Research into the boundary regions between various fields, and complex problems of interfacing these different media and elements, such as music and visual art, hardware and software, electronics and humanities in the classical sense . . . this had been my major task since 1958.”
This symposium will illuminate a range of possible ‘interfaces’ implied in Paik’s works and writings, while also seeking possible connections between the ‘interfaces’ and the historical and contemporary trajectories of the media art and culture. Presenters will shed new light on Paik’s works and their underlying thoughts either in terms of rewriting the varying yet interrelated histories of the expansion of the moving image in the 1960s and 70s, or in terms of articulating his influences on the aesthetics and politics of contemporary digital art and culture, which include the shifting ideas of information, archiving, transmission, and media. These two lines of investigation ultimately aim to reanimate Paik, giving his works and ideas new images and movements of thought (Gilles Deleuze). We would like you to take part in this symposium with much interest.
* NJPAC complimentary exhibition tickets will be offered to those who reserve the event.
