With Nam June Paik & Bill Clinton, and with performances and/or actions by Günter Brus, Hugo Kaagman, Carlos Llavata, Stefan Ruitenbeek – DVD
Nam June Paik and Bill Clinton, 9th of June, 1998
1998 is the year of the Monica Lewinsky affair,
the intern who had a sexual relationship with President Bill Clinton.
That same year, Nam June Paik is invited for an official reception.
Paik, who can hardly walk, is accompanied by his cousin Ken Paik Hakuta.
The moment the artist is presented to the President, his pants come down.
He isn’t wearing any underpants.
