What do outer space capsules, submarines, and office buildings have in common? Each was conceived as a closed system: partial reconstructions of the world in time and in space. Featuring an archive of 41 historical living prototypes from 1927 to the present – an unexplored genealogy of closed resource regeneration systems – Closed Worlds documents a disciplinary transformation and the rise of a new environmental consensus.

Prior to the exhibition launch join us for The Curious Case of Closed Worlds: a free guest lecture by curator Lydia Kallipoliti at UTS Futures from 5–6pm.
