‘My Jubilee ist Unverhemmet’ : Paik Nam-june’s wish realized at Nam June Paik Art CenterBy Park Yuna

The museum, which the artist described as a “house where the spirit of Nam June Paik lives on,” will kick-start the yearlong celebration of Paik‘s legacy with the unveiling a new website where his video works, research about the artist and exhibition archives will be shared, open free to the public. The only art center dedicated to Paik, the Nam June Paik Art center was founded in Yongin, Gyeonggi Province.
The website will be run permanently and requires users to sign up for full access to the digital archives, according to the art center.
“We have prepared many special projects for this year in cooperation with other art institutes to commemorate the 90th anniversary,” Kim Seong-eun, director of the Nam June Paik Art Center, said in a press conference Tuesday.
The art center took the artist’s words “My Jubilee ist Unverhemmet” -- a phrase of English and German words that appeared on the cover of the 12-inch vinyl record published by Paik in 1977 ahead of his 45th birthday -- as the overarching theme for this year’s celebration.
During the first half of the year, the art center will showcase three major exhibitions: “Archaeology of the Avantgarde” and “The Last Consummate Second” in March and “Analog Immersive” in July. It will also present a special exhibition of the artist‘s works in November in collaboration with the Seoul Museum of Art.
