news: Converted Bicycles publication spring 2019


Converted Bicycles
A collection of India’s modified bicycles

The collection shows a unique insight of human creativity as a consequence of scarcity. The bicycle is the means of transport of the poor in India. Poverty in India is extreme, but that does not mean that people do not have dreams or ambitions. In order to achieve their goals, Indians hack, improvise and modify their bicycles and us them as resources to support their livelihoods.

This publication shows 65 different uses of the bicycle in India.

Crowdfunding publication: February 2019
Exhibition and presentation: April 2019
