In recent years the pavements of many cities around the world have been flooded by so-called "dockless sharing vehicles". With promises of eco-friendly mobility, venture capitalist companies have occupied both the legal and physical grey zones between private and public space on the streets of our cities, raising important questions about ownership, agency, ecology and economy in contemporary urban space.

The OPENCOIL project, carried out by Anton Jehle and Dennis De Bel, explores the impact of such micro-mobility services on (public) urban space by reappropriating their decentralised infrastructure as a space for experimentation, while also addressing the conditions and effects of this infrastructure.

The OPENCOIL project is supported by the City of Brussels - Department of Culture, Youth, Leisure and Sports.
