Adopting Nam June Paik’s creative vision for technology as a transitory and implacable force for social change, but distanced from the optimistic artistic avant-garde that propelled it, There is no rewind proffers images of an ever-unfolding present, populated by surrogates, phantoms, hollow polygons and often dystopic environments.

Including video screenings and live performances, recreations of seminal experimental music pieces and academic ruminations on Paik’s artistic lineage, the evening comprises of a complex series of experiences and ideas.

The present moment is always teaming, expansive and ever-changing, perhaps it cannot be rationally grasped, but we must engage with the direction we are headed in because there is no rewind.
