Folke Köbberling & Martin Kaltwasser – Cars into Bicycles

Folke Köbberling & Martin Kaltwasser

We are currently teaching at the fine art department of the Art Center College of Design. Together with a few students we are following the »Californian Dream« and, after test runs in Graz (Austria) and Hamburg, we are bringing an idea to the motherland of world-changing innovations. For seven weeks, Cars to Bicycles demonstrates the »life thereafter« on the premises of Bergamot Station, the real existing mobility of the city as an ingenious, unique, rich resource, in order to create a reality of mobility that is of much greater quality. Cars are transformed into functioning bicycles in order to form a different kind of mobility out of extremely valuable raw materials.

In the exhibition examples to follow! the bikes are shown that were produced from an Opel in the summer of 2009 at the summerfestival at Kampnagel.

Dear partners, supporters, friends and lovers,

due to the COVID-19 Virus our little ETF! office in Berlin remains closed and we are working from home.

As many fellow artists, creatives and freelancers this Corona crisis has hit us hard.
We had hoped to send out a newsletter this spring informing you all about our 19th venue in Lisbon, which was supposed to open in Carpintarias São Lázaro on the 19th of June 2020.
Now, with all the cancellations and the shut down of cultural life we hope to postpone and for EXAMPLES TO FOLLOW! to still be part of the program of Lisboa Green Capital 2020.
We will keep you posted.

Keep safe.
