(p.163) 6 Auto-Mobility
Unlearning the City

Swati Chattopadhyay

University of Minnesota Press

This chapter presents vehicular art, which enables people to think of mobility in more distinct ways—not just as upward mobility or more efficient movement, but also as passage from one cultural space to another, from one historical moment to another, from one vision to another. It examines the result of a series of compromises between the city authorities, the poor, and middle classes; between the elite and the subaltern; between the formal and informal economy. It also states that vehicular art, as pop culture, provides a method for unlocking the spatial logic of urban marginality.

Keywords:   vehicular art, mobility, spatial logic, urban marginality, compromises
