During the 1960s the Moderna Museum, Stockholm, was the setting for a number of contemporary international exhibitions and avant-garde events, where Reuterswärd mounted several mixed-media Happenings. In his work Mascot for ‘Movement in Art’ (1960) he bound a tailor’s dummy to a chair and later had it cast in bronze. From 1965 he taught at the Kungliga Akademi för de Fria Konsterna, Stockholm, and in the same year began his pioneering experiments in the use of laser beam (see Laser) and holography. A retrospective exhibition of his work was held at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris, in ...
