This catalog is a project I have worked on with Omar Kholeif and with the support of FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology). It follows the first major retrospective on Nam June Paik in the UK with an exhibition and conference organized by Tate Liverpool and FACT. The exhibition Nam June Paik, December 17, 2010 to March 13, 2011, was curated by Sook-Kyung Lee and Susanne Rennert. I wish to acknowledge the gracious support provided to this publication by the Estate of Nam June Paik. In particular special thanks go to Ken Hakuta, Executor, Nam June Paik Estate. Also, special thanks go to Mike Stubbs (Director/CEO of FACT) for his support.

The catalog is available on Amazon.
