The 10th Anniversary Remembrance of Nam June Paik 《Utopian Laser TV Station》
Nam June Paik announced the idea of underground television channel using VVHP in his first video tape screening brochure in 1965. This idea was developed in Manifesto – Utopian Laser TV Station from The Great Bear Pamphlet by Something Else Press in 1966. Utopian Laser TV Station, a 24-hour running channel, planned to present Chess lesson by Marcel Duchamp, Morning gymnastics by Merce Cunningham, Avant-garde cooking recipes for endless sex, temporary death, controllable dreams, endless unsex, endless youth by Alison Knowles, and many other programs. Nam June Paik expected that many small to medium sized television stations using high frequency laser signals made people free from monopolistic commercial broadcasting system. As Paik expected thirty years would be enough for these changes, he designated expected broadcast date as 1996. The Utopian Laser TV Station is Paik’s prediction for (internet) TV stations in the future. 2016 is the 10th year after Paik passed away, and in remembrance of Paik, Nam June Paik Art Center would commemorate Nam June Paik in Paik’s way. Via internet network, Nam June Paik Art Center presents live memorial event overcoming the limit of time and space. Utopian Laser TV Station in 2016 is an homage program for Paik, presenting web-based memorial event, live screening of Paik’s single channel video tapes, featuring live sound and DJing performances tributed to Nam June Paik. As Paik predicted in 1966, Utopian Laser TV Station in 2016 will be viewed on YouTube channel( in real time on January 29th, on which day he passed away in 2006. For three days, Utopian Laser TV Station in 2016 will present live performances of young contemporary artists and single channel screenings at the Nam June Paik Art Center. Participating artists are Seungwon PARK, Hyoung San JUN, Baja Woo, Joonyong CHOI, tapeape, haihm, PARPUNK, and Dguru.
