Catalogue Note

“My first friends were Fluxus people, who were always anti-something – antimusic, antiart, and anti-Stockhausen, et cetera. But the new video generation were pro-something- “constructing” a new society with the new tool of video” (Nam June Paik in conversation with David Ross, in: Toni Stoos and Thomas Kellein, Eds., Nam June Paik: Video Time – Video Space, New York 1993, p. 57).
