Abstract or Description

NJP Reader #8 – Future Museum: Public to Commons

Nam June Paik Art Center hosted the 2018 International Symposium, ‘The Gift of Nam June Paik 10’ from October 12th to 13th under the title, Future Museum: From Public to Commons. The international symposium series, ‘The Gift of Nam June Paik’ also welcomed its 10th anniversary and it has been designed to review the past decade of Nam June Paik Art Center.

Experimenting the ‘commons model’ as a new ontology to unfold as well as a communication method, the symposium initiated from thinking about ‘after the future’, and examined the political, aesthetic, economic and technical conditions necessary to become the commons, and further discuss the practical measures of the commons movement, currently occurring in the art scene worldwide.

The outcomes of the symposium are presented in the form to be shared by anyone and will be rich sources for thinking about a future museum. According to Nam June Paik, thinking about the future is the role of the artist. Ultimately, anyone can think about the future and be an artist.
