More details about the Sym­posia below:

In an era of real­ity tele­vi­sion and the con­tin­ual rise of the web, The Future is Now exam­ines the legacy of Paik’s think­ing and prac­tice with a focus on per­for­mance and iden­tity, sit­u­ated within cur­rent debates around new tech­nolo­gies, ubiq­uity and human expe­ri­ence. Through inno­v­a­tive web adven­tures and con­ver­sa­tions chaired by Will Gom­pertz, Arts Edi­tor at the BBC and pre­vi­ously Direc­tor of Tate Media, speak­ers and per­form­ers includ­ing col­lab­o­ra­tors of Paik, con­tem­po­rary artists and the­o­rists, con­sider how artists are con­strained or lib­er­ated by a con­stant re-imagining of the future. Par­tic­i­pants include Roy Ascott, Jeremy Bai­ley, Ruth Cat­low, John Han­hardt, Kristin Lucas and Marisa Olson.
