About the author (1993)

Nam June Paik was born in 1932 in Seoul, Korea. He moved to New York from Germany in 1964, and by the late 60s was at the forefront of a new generation of artists creating an aesthetic discourse out of television and the moving image. Throughout the 70s and 80s, Paik also worked as a teacher and an activist, supporting other artists and working to realize the potential of the emerging medium of video. Along with his remarkable sequence of videotapes and projects for television--featuring collaborations with friends Laurie Anderson, Joseph Beuys, David Bowie, John Cage, and Merce Cunningham--he created a series of installations that fundamentally changed video and redefined artistic practice.
