The Soft Cosmos of AD’s ‘Cosmorama’ in the 1960s and 1970s


  • Lydia Kallipoliti


Between 1968 and 1973, the innovative ‘Cosmorama’ section of AD played an influential role in promoting alternative technologies and ecological experiments. Here, guest-editor Lydia Kallipoliti provides her own ‘soft cosmos’: a genealogy of ecological material experimentation and thinking in the 1960s and 1970s, which puts particular stress on the biological, elastic, moulded and pneumatic.
