Velocypedia Part I

Velocypedia: A contemporary art exhibition about bicycle passion and sustainable transportation

International exhibition Velocypedia introduces works of artists, designers, craftspeople, and fans of cycling – everything inspired by the most known mode of transport powered by human force – the bicycle. The bicycle plays a main role as a symbol of sustainable mobility, providing unlimited pleasure and unusual functions.

The aim of the exhibition is to promote everyday cycling and at the same time to highlight the problems of transportation in big cities in 21st century. Other important topics of the exhibition include criticism of the negative impacts of automobilism and the occupancy of public spaces for car expansion.

A bike ride should be full of unlimited freedom, nevertheless in Prague it is often a fight for survival in the stream of motorized transport. The exhibition is an appeal to the Prague City municipality to systematically solve this unpleasant situation for cyclists.

The Velocypedia exposition in the NTK Gallery introduced more than 50 artistic projects (sculptures, installations, paintings, photography, film, and comics), design and simple do-it-yourself creativity. All the works are now presented online.

The exhibition was held in Prague, Czech Republic, from May 4th till May May 24th 2011.

Curators: Lenka Kukurová & Milan Mikuláštík
