Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd – a pioneer in art holograms
Welcome to a lecture about Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd’s holograms. Reuterswärd was among the first to utilise new technologies such as lasers and holograms. He started using laser in 1962, and both techniques helped him to expand the concept of sculpture.

Several of Reuterswärd’s holograms will be described with illustrations, and white-light holograms will be shown at the lecture. Free admission.
