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.

Pictures from the exhibition in Erfurt here!


We mourn our friend and benefactor, the artist and philosopher Prince Rudolf zur Lippe, who died on 6 September 2019.

He made thoughts dance and people move.

During the exhibition in Erfurt, which shows works from the cycle "Learning from the Birds" in the church of the Augustinian monastery, he wanted to talk to us about it and how it is linked to Goethe and Alexander von Humboldt.

We will miss him greatly, not only there.
