Nam June Paik, mixed media, 1990

During the 60s, this South-Korean pioneer of video art and key figure of the Fluxus-movement played on a damaged piano to which all kinds of objects were attached. With this, Nam June Paik was the first composer of the acoustic anarchy. With synthesizers he mixed technological instruments to create the new image. This artist made TV-gardens and also created his art in empty pools. He combined several monitors with various objects and showed his big installations on all kinds of screens.

For ‘Antares’, Paik communicated with electric media and distorted his video tapes to abstract images. This artwork has unstable images but displays a concatenation full of unrest for the eye. With his many screens, the artist consciously leads the viewer into the intellectual chaos of his time.
