Pushwagner - The Machine Is Calling - Soft City and Unseen Works


Hariton Pushwagner’s visionary epic Soft City (1969–75) is one of the greatest works of the Norwegian avant-garde, both a mesmerising visual experiment and a panoramic satire on a modern society devoted to bureaucracy, conformity, consumerism, fascism and war. The Machine Is Calling presents – for the first time in Oslo – all 154 original drawings for Soft City. Also on show will be some of Pushwagner’s final prints, and recently rediscovered drawings made in London during the 1970s.
