Chinetik - Tinguely Museum

There are still 540 million bicycles in China, the former land of the bicycle - and tricycle.

Soon cars will gain the upper hand on cyclists on the streets. The tricycles served as mobile kitchens, for the transport of coal, as workshops, shops or were used for garbage removal. Conscious of the phenomenon, Klaus Littmann has made a collection of these second-hand tricycles with their loads, and also incited various artists to treat the subject matter of these vehicles and their inherent cultural significance.
