Nam June Paik is a major contemporary artist and a seminal figure in video art. His video sculptures, installations, performances and tapes encompass one of the most influential and significant bodies of work in the medium.

From his Fluxus-based performances and altered television sets of the early 1960s, to his ground-breaking videotapes and multi-media installations of the 1970s, '80s and '90s, Paik has made an enormous contribution to the history and development of video as an art form. Exercising radical art-making strategies with irreverent humor, he deconstructs and demystifies the language, content and technology of television. Merging global communications theories with an antic Pop sensibility, his iconoclastic works explore the juncture of art and popular culture.

KLEX aims at introducing both historical and contemporary experimental cinema to the Malaysian audience, nurturing the experimental film and videomakers in the region, and developing experimental cinema communities in Malaysia. KLEX will be a venue for a discourse on critical issues related to the edge of cinema art.

What would be experimental cinema in Malaysia and is there a chance for development of this genre in Malaysia?
