The film is the result of the three years the two documentarians spent with the artist, who tried to change the world but ended up on the brink of losing everything.
Pushwagner is the pseudonym of the Norwegian pop artist Terje Brofos, a sarcastic combination of “push” and “wagon” (the shopping cart in a supermarket). For decades, the artist has been working on a critique of contemporary society torn apart by wars and capitalism. His satire eventually took shape as the famous Soft City, exhibited at the Berlin Biennale of Contemporary Art.
