Exhibition: Nam June Paik, Exposition of Music. Electronic Television, Galerie Parnass, Wuppertal
Four prepared pianos, mechanized sound objects, several record-player and audio-tape installations, twelve modified television sets, a freshly slaughtered ox head, etc. form the expansive environment. Although video technology is yet to be employed, Paik’s first-ever presentation of his manipulated televisions, distorting the image of the screened television program, is today thought to mark the birth of video art.
