A world-famous pioneer of media art, Seoul-born Nam June Paik (1932-2006) was a true cosmopolitan, living, working and studying in Japan, Germany and the US, where he established the genre of video art and explored a stunning range of creative impulses. Perhaps the most influential artist to ever come out of Korea, Paik is remembered for unique works like a life-size robot made from old-school TV sets to portray the evolution of robotics and a statue of a sitting Buddha facing its image on a security camera screen. This extensive retrospective, which is split into two parts, includes installations, video, paintings, drawings and more – a total of 230 pieces created from the '70s to the late '90s and curated by Shinya Watanabe, a renowned Paik expert.

Very nice exhibition.

However I wonder whether the policy of giving limiting the distribution of the single A4 sheet of paper with info on the works to one sheet per ticket was really necessary.  That is what I was told when I asked for a second copy at the exit, after returning the bound leaflet in english which I was given. If yes, what is the motivation behind the limit? Keep the costs low, or save the environment?
