In this exhibition, you can see the artistic world of Paik Nam June, a revolutionary artist who freely crosses media, as well as video art and TV sculpture representing Paik Nam June (1932-2006), as well as drawings and collages.

Nam June Paik, ‘TV Buddha’

Paik Nam June, who has shown unconventional performances on the world stage since the 1960s, pioneered a new field of media art using the TV Braun tube. Since then, the appearance of media art pioneered by Paik Nam June has changed and expanded over the years, but the concept of the combination of video and art he left behind is evaluated as a 'current progressive art' that is still evolving.
