Since the health crisis, cycling as a mode of transport has exploded in most of the world’s major metropolitan centres. Brussels is no exception to this phenomenon. Cycling trips have increased by 64% in 2020 compared to 2019. During this exceptional evening of conferences and debates, Brussels Academy and BOZAR, together with other experts and associations, will examine the place of this two-hundred-year-old mode of transport in the light of the major contemporary urban issues, such as the climate transition, social justice, the accessibility of urban centres, etc.
This initiative is part of the ‘Bike Station’, a long term reflection of the Centre for Fine Arts around soft mobility, bike infrastructures, arts and cultural heritage. Supported by Urban.Brussels, it will initiate a series of artistic and discursive initiatives around bikes in 2021.
