squib-box, alongside cellist Anton Lukoszevieze re-animate and re-imagine iconic Paik pieces and performances alongside works by other Fluxus artists and pieces inspired by Paik. Works revisited include One for Solo Violin, Random Access, Pop Sonata and the Fluxus Champion Contest.

Produced by Third Ear.

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.
