Nam June Paik
«One for Violin Solo»
Over the course of five minutes, Paik very slowly and intently lifts up a violin in this on-stage action on 16 June 1962 – and then smashes it with one blow on the table. Simultaneously, the lights go up in the auditorium. After the long drawn-out suspense, only one, final sound has been produced by the instrument.
