NOW JUMP, Nam Jun Paik Art Festival to 5 Feb, Gyeonggi-do

NOW JUMP, the festival's title, originates in an Aesop punchline: "Hic Rhodus, Hic saltus!" NOW JUMP is an appeal to exceed past achievements: NOW is always the time to act. An invitation or call to action, this festival also represents the ambition of the Nam June Paik Art Center to leap into the future through the NJP Festival.
NOW JUMP is organized according to the concept of 'Stations,' simultaneously encompassing a state of stillness and of motion or anticipation of motion. In our everyday experience these can be places where trains or buses regularly stop; broadcasting stations; power stations; research institutes; studios; local headquarters; habitats; social status or postures. For NOW JUMP five stations exist as concurrent initiatives: exhibitions, performances, and platforms to establish discourse
