1964 and 1965 Ture Sjolnader's MACHINE ART EXHIBITION was even earlier than many

Ture Sjolander did not move to US but his works, like MONUMENT 1967 was televised to
a hugh audience in Europe, something like 150 million people.
Ture Sjolander never liked to belong to any groups of artists less being an
artist placed in a kinda "stable" made up by artcurators at the museums or artgallery owners.
