Since the 1960s, the Norwegian artist Hariton Pushwagner (Oslo 1940) has produced a body of work with a gloomy vision of the future. MK Gallery director Anthony Spira gives a short introduction on the work of this mysterious artist.

Following a productive period, Pushwagner's life and career suffered a downward spiral in the 1980s and 1990s due to the artist's dependence on drink and drugs. He has enjoyed a revival since 2008, followed by a solo exhibition in MK Gallery and Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen.
