Spider webs, astrophysics and legendary visionaries such as Buckminster Fuller are just some of artist Tomás Saraceno's sources of inspiration. He calls his works ‘biospheres’: They are inhabited as organic dimensional meshworks that hover in the room, sometimes adorned with plants, sometimes simply suspended by black nets. Having originally studied architecture, the artist's starting point for his works is the interest in our current and future living environment and society. The exhibition in the Hamburger Bahnhof occupies the entire Historic Hall room – for this represents the first time approx. 20 of his ‘biosphere’ works are going on display together. In this installation, Saraceno shows his three-dimensional vision of a Utopian world that visitors can enter. This way, visitors can experience how a system composed of individual modules can create a new spatial cosmos.
