Description In 1963, with his first individual show Exposition of Music. Electronic Television at the legendary Galerie Parnass in Wuppertal, Germany, the young Nam June Paik literally created a new genre of exhibition. The visitors, who were greeted in front of the entrance with a freshly slaughtered ox head, were not only confronted with the newness of the electronic image, but also found themselves integrated into a Dadaist scenario staged with prepared pianos, mechanical sound objects along with record players and audio tape installations. Together with documents, photographs and the works of Paik, this catalogue recreates scenes from the original show, letting the works again come to life in their original context. Published on the occasion of the exhibition Nam June Paik: Music for All Senses at Museum Moderner Kunst Stiftung Ludwig Wien, February ndash; May 2009. English and German text.
