Swedish provocateur Ruben Östlund (Force Majeure) took home the Palme d’Or at Cannes for this no-holds-barred satire of the postmodern art world. On the verge of opening a prestigious exhibition, imperious and self-centred curator Christian (Claes Bang) is beset by a host of troubles — including a less-than- successful online marketing campaign, a performance piece gone horribly awry, and a mugging which leaves him both shaken and determined to hunt down the perpetrator — which sets both him and his museum on a crash course with crisis.
