Media, time, change, and materiality
This past Tuesday, October 10th, my new book Paik’s Virtual Archive: Time, Change and Materiality in Media Art was launched at the UCL Institute of Advanced Studies in London (link to the event). It was accompanied by a panel discussion – Permanent Impermanence – with Briony Fer (Profesor of Art History at the UCL Department of History of Art) and Sarah Cook (Dundee Fellow and curator at the University of Dundee). Scholarly, curatorial, museological, and conservation perspectives were combined to provide insights into the intricacies and complexities of media artworks. The panel was enriched by interesting questions and comments from the audience. The well-attended event was followed by a wine reception. I was very pleased to see many good friends and colleagues and am grateful for such good reception of teh book! Below are a few visual impressions from the evening.
