In the Wikipedia article about Nam Jun Paik, Korean-American artist (1932-2006), I found the following juxtaposition of facts amusing and thought I’d share. I added names in brackets for clarity.
The last sentence of the first paragraph of the “Works” section reads:
“In a 1960 piano performance in Cologne, [Paik] played Chopin, threw himself on the piano and rushed into the audience, attacking [John] Cage and pianist David Tudor by cutting their clothes with scissors and dumping shampoo on their heads.”
Next paragraph starts:
“Cage suggested Paik look into Oriental music and Oriental religion.”
I’d probably make that suggestion, too, after I’d been “attacked” in such a manner. LOL. Zen anyone?
