The Protest Bike, Paris is conceived as both an installation and a public intervention, launched in Paris in 2016. Voicing ‘the complaint’ is the focus of the project, as a universal phenomenon that could be organized in any city. Citizens are welcome to use the bike for personal or choral public protest without cultural or thematic limit, an open platform offering alternative forms of public demonstration and action. Any slogan or lament can be shouted, declaimed or simply recounted while cycling on the Protest Bike also understood as an act of physical effort that underlines the participant’s will to express themselves.
