Editorial Reviews

Media artist Nam Jun Paik broke the rules of both art and television by bridging the gap between the two. NAM JUN PAIK: LESSONS FROM THE VIDEO MASTER offers three films that reveal not only the artist but also the human being.
Video artist Skip Blumberg s title film features 47 stylized but insightful interviews with Paik s friends, collaborators, and protégés. Recorded at the artist s memorial service, the film brings together such art-world luminaries as Merce Cunningham, Yoko Ono, and Paik s nephew, Ken Paik Hakuta. In addition, the BONUS ART VIDEO contains 17 additional interviews from New York City s art community, including those from video-art curator David Ross and indie-film pioneer Jonas Mekas. Rounding out this rare film is a video-within-a-video of Yoko Ono s special performance for Paik at the Guggenheim Museum and a nine-minute short version of LESSONS FROM THE VIDEO MASTER suitable for high-school and middle-school students.

It's very nice that NJP's friends had so many nice things to say about him after his funeral, but as far as seeing what his work was like, you might just as well watch the minute-and-a-half video clip by the first reviewer. Essentially, the same collection of talking heads at what amounts to an art world soiree shown three times in versions of different lengths. One of the first rules of any video medium is "don't TELL me--SHOW me."
