In International Symposium, speakers will explore the concept of “archeology” from two different perspectives. On the other hand, archeology as the scientific method of tracing historical beginnings; on the other hand, archeology as the foucauldian strategy of deconstructing power/signification systems. One may connect the notion of “archeology” to Nam June Paik’s artistic practice from both perspectives, as it not only embodies the historical beginning of new artistic media, but also an act of inventing what we might call “artistic archeology”.
The symposium will address both lines of thought: Name June Paik’s re-territorialization of new media, as well as the topicality of his artistic archeology as a strategy of deterritorialization.
