Nam June Paik: Global Groove 2004
April 17–July 9, 2004
Created especially for the Deutsche Guggenheim, Global Groove 2004 looks back to Nam June Paik's influential 1973 video work Global Groove, an embodiment of television's potential as a powerful medium for artists. Combining Paik's newly restored, ground-breaking videos from the 1960s and his single-channel video experiments originally broadcast on television, Global Groove 2004 reminds us just how far ahead of his time Paik was, and still is.
Nam June Paik in collaboration with John J. Godfrey, Global Groove, 1973 (detail). Single-channel videotape, 00:28:30, color, and sound. Produced by the TV Lab at WNET/Thirteen, New York
