Cool Bike Cinema Draws Attention to Vacant Lots in Madrid

In a project financed by the Netherlands Embassy in Spain, the collective Basurama organized a workshop to build vehicles using discarded bike parts. The resulting bikes were afterwards used in actions in the public space.

One of such bikes was afterwards turned into a moving cinema, and was used for an intervention in the public space during a cultural activity at La Guindalera neighborhood in Madrid.

Neighbors from the place wrote wishes and took images which were projected over vacant lots, with the goal of denouncing that these spaces could be converted into public places.

Pop up cinemas have become popular over the past years, even making use of unusual spots like staircases.

The bike cinema, however, is a cool take on the idea; and this use, a worthy one.
