Deliciously absurd tragicomedy about the contemporary art world and modern man

In a prestigious museum for contemporary art, the latest work by a famous American artist is being prepared: an installation intended to promote altruism. The curator, a respected man, engages a PR firm to create the necessary buzz around the art installation. The story escalates and both the museum director and the museum are in an existential crisis.

The Square won the Golden Palm at the Cannes Film Festival, won 6 European Film Awards, including the one for Best European Film, and is a favorite for the Oscar for Best Foreign Film.
