The Worlds of Nam June Paik
New York Guggenheim Museum 2000 0810969254 / 9780810969254 1st Hardcover Very Good Fine Exhibition Catalogue 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall

Dust jacket protected in a mylar book cover. OVERSIZE! No priority/international, except by special arrangement. "No artist has had a greater influence in imagining and realizing the artistic potential of video and television than Korean-born Nam June Paik. Through a vast array of installations, videotapes, global television productions, films, and performances, Paik has reshaped our perceptions of the temporal image in contemporary art. The Worlds of Nam June Paik transforms the Guggenheim Museum into a celebration of the moving image and an appreciation of Paik's impact on the art of the late-twentieth century. Video Commune, a Web site created for the occasion by Electronic Arts Intermix and the Guggenheim Museum, draws from EAI's extensive documentation of Paik's single-channel videotapes to present an interactive view of his collaborations with other artists, dancers, and musicians." - Publisher.

The Museum Project, Kim, Atta; Kim, Yu Yeon (Essay by)

The Museum Project
New York Aperture Foundation 2005 1931788553 / 9781931788557 1st Hardcover Fine Fine Collectible Oblong 
Cloth, 96 pp., chiefly illus. (chiefly col.), bib. notes; 31 x 35 cm. Firm binding, clean inside copy. Stated "First Edition." Fine DJ. OVERSIZE! No priority/international, except by special arrangement. "In The Museum Project, Korean photographer Atta Kim commandeers average scenes -- city streets, department stores, freight depots, and forests -- and turns them into exhibition spaces. On display are people crammed into acrylic boxes, stacked in sets, on end, or sometimes alone. In selecting his subjects and isolating them in their boxes, Kim aims to 'detach them from reality; to display and deconstruct at the same time my own concept of the world.' Kim compares his efforts to that of an archaeologist, sifting through the cultural strata in order to unearth and hold up exemplary objects for our contemplation. The Museum Project is comprised of a number of series, such as 'War Memorial,' 'Sex,' 'Suicide,' and other human typologies, each intended to highlight a particular mode of behavior or belief. In certain series, the subjects are isolated from their natural settings, each display case simply framed and offset by backdrops in primary colors. The resulting images are curious and startling, straddling the indeterminate ground between performance, photography, and an alternate form of anthropology. 'The subject of history is, finally, nothing but human beings,' Kim says. '[The] great order of . the cosmos is that all kinds of acts conducted by human beings are always watched by someone.' / Atta Kim was born in Korea in 1956. He graduated from Changwon University with a Bachelor of Science degree and has been actively photographing since the mid-1980s. He has had solo shows at the Samsung Photo Gallery, Seoul; the Nikon Salon Gallery, Tokyo; the Yechong Gallery, Seoul; and has been included in numerous group exhibitions, including shows at the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago; The Odens Foto Triennale in Odens, Denmark; the Australian Centre for Photography; the twenty-fifth São Paolo Bienal; and FotoFest in Houston." - Publisher.
