Hariton Pushwagner

born 1940 in Oslo, Norway, lives and works in Oslo, Norway

Hariton Pushwagner’s video Soft City (picture novel 1968-1976, film 2006-2008) outlines a capitalist future of standardization as a social phenomenon that in its enforced conformity hardly differs from the communist past. It depicts the mental, psychological, and socioeconomic effects of how people are organizing and being organized.
