Nam June Paik #AsianPacificAmericanHeritageMonth #APAHM #AAPIHM
In honor of Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, we are celebrating the work of legendary artist and engineer Nam June Paik. Just yesterday, PBS began airing a great documentary titled Nam June Paik: Moon Is the Oldest TV from filmmaker Amanda Kim that details his life, work, and legacy. You can stream it here!
See the world through the eyes of Nam June Paik, the father of video art and coiner of the term “electronic superhighway.” Born in Japan-occupied Korea, Paik went on to become a pillar of the American avant-garde and transformed modern image-making with his sculptures, films and performances. Experience his creative evolution, as Academy Award nominee Steven Yeun reads from Paik’s own writings.
