Newly restored, rare performance material from Nam June Paik's personal archives, including many collaborations with Charlotte Moorman, are featured in two remarkable volumes. These documents trace the evolution of Paik's eclectic and at times eccentric performance work over three decades, from a haunting, silent 1961 film (Hand and Face) to a 1994 tribute to John Cage at the Kitchen in New York.

Volume 2 features rare documentation of performances by Paik, ranging from the iconic Violin Dragging (1975), to his pioneering turntable composition Fluxus Sonata and a 1991 collaboration with the hard-core band Bad Brains.
