A photograph of the work "Biospheres" by Tomás Saraceno.

Detail from: Tomás Saraceno, Biospheres, 2009

Visit a biosphere – the future of living?

Please note, from 9 December 2010 the Biosphere is temporarily closed due to maintenance.

Visit Tomás Saraceno's biosphere. Open every day from 10 a. m. to 11 a. m.

Argentinean artist Tomás Saraceno has filled the entire 2,000 m² of the Museum’s Sculpture Street with a range of biospheres made of plastics extending between the old and new building in the Museum complex. Several of the spheres house unusual plant-based ecosystems, whilst others are filled with water. Visitors to the Museum can step inside the biggest of the transparent globes hanging 10 metres above the glistening marble floor.

The monumental, spectacular installation was part of the exhibition RETHINK Relations being shown in conjunction with the 2009 Copenhagen United Nations Climate Change Conference. The exhibition RETHINK Relations is now closed, but Biospheres can be seen till 1 January 2011. Entry to the sizeable biosphere is free.
