Shanghai's one and only "night museum" HOW Art Museum
continues to impress contemporary art lovers. Currently on display in this three-story building is a strong selection of works from two important Fluxus figures: Joseph Beuys
and Nam June Paik
. One was a German avant-garde sculptor and performance artist, well-regarded in the US but whose work was once considered as the "most expensive trash of all time" at home. The other is the Korean-born multimedia artist, who spent the majority of his adult life in the west, and widely regarded as the "Father of Video Art". The two artists had formed a unique bond since 1961 in Germany and collaborated on many projects throughout their career.
