Lars Nittve will never forget the first time he visited a museum alone. “There was this enormous sculpture of a woman and you walked into her between her legs,” he recalls. “It was like a museum within a museum there. For a 13-year-old boy, that was a memorable experience.” Freudian considerations aside, that unorthodox encounter with the work of Swiss artist Jean Tinguely at Stockholm’s Moderna Museet in 1966 taught Nittve early on to challenge accepted norms of art and how it is meant to be displayed.
