The worlds of Nam June Paik by John G Hanhardt( Book )

13 editions published in 2000 in 3 languages and held by 683 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No artist has had a greater influence in imagining and realizing the artistic potential of video and television than Nam June Paik. Through a vast array of installations, videotapes, global television productions, films and performances, Paik has reshaped our perceptions of the temporal image in contemporary art. The Worlds of Nam June Paik is a celebration of the moving image and an appreciation of Paik's impact on the art of the late twentieth century. The full range of Paik's singular achievement is represented--from his early 1960s performance pieces through his videotapes, installations, megatrons and celebrated robot portraits--including his recent, spectacular laser-projection installations in the rotunda of Frank Lloyd Wright's Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. In an informative and personal essay, John G. Hanhardt, a longtime supporter of Paik's work, provides an overview of the artist's career while focusing on his important place in the history of the moving image. Also included are a selected exhibition and performance history as well as a selected bibliography [Publisher description]

Nam June Paik by Nam June Paik( Book )

13 editions published in 2010 in English and German and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nam June Paik (1932-2006) was one of the most innovative artists of the 20th century. His influence is still felt in music, the visual arts, film, and video. Extensively illustrated, with extracts from interviews and reminiscences from many who were close to Paik during his lifetime, this is the most thorough and illuminating exploration of Paik's legacy yet published. Born in South Korea, Paik began his career as a composer in Japan and in Germany, where he met John Cage and collaborated with Joseph Beuys. Moving to New York in 1964, he formed relationships with a number of artists associated with the Fluxus group, particularly the cellist Charlotte Moorman, who became one of his closest collaborators. He continued to experiment in performance and video art, famously using manipulated televisions as elements in sculptural works, creating robot sculptures and installations. An international range of contributors trace the course of Paik's life and career, exploring his connections with key figures in the 20th-century avant-garde, his theoretical writings, and his lasting influence."--Publisher description
Strange music of Namjune Paik by Nam June Paik( Visual )

11 editions published between 1975 and 2007 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Namjune Paik, Korean-born avant garde composer, assisted by cellist Charlotte Moorman, in a presentation of several pieces that explore his art. Paik, who revels in the description of himself as the world's most famous bad pianist and the George Washington of video art, has been pushing at the boundaries of electronic music since the possibilities of synthesized music and video first appeared. Here he presents Global Groove, The Medium Is the Medium, and Paik Meets Beethoven (which he created for the Boston Symphony.) Paik, who had an advanced formal education at Tokyo University and the University of Munich, and studied at the Freiburg Conservatory, was turned into his path as a master nontraditionalist by meeting the avant garde composer John Cage
Variations V by John Cage( Visual )

3 editions published in 2013 in German and English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Variations V reflects the experimentation and spirit of the 1960s -- a collaborative, interactive multi-media event with choreographed dance, elaborate mobile decor, variable lighting, multiple film projection, and live-electronic music often activated by the dancers' movements. Filmed in 1966 at the NDR television studio in Hamburg, Germany, it is historically important as one of the few available films of a Cunningham Dance Company performance from the 1960s and the first commercial release of Variations V. As the dancers performed on stage, their movements interacted with twelve antennas built by Robert Moog and a set of photocells designed by Bell Labs research scientist Billy Klver in such a way as to trigger the transmission of sounds to a 50-channel mixer whose output was heard from six speakers around the hall. The actual sound sources--a battery of tape recorders and radios--were supervised by Cage, David Tudor and Gordon Mumma. The mise-en-scene was supplemented by a film collage by Stan VanDerBeek that included processed television images by Nam June Paik and footage of the dancers shot by VanDerBeek during rehearsals
