In 2011, the work "Spirit of Ecstasy" was displaced at the ZKM Centre for Art and Media Technology in Karlsruhe at the group exhibition titled "Car Culture. Media and Mobility". The aim of the exhibition was to look at the idea of the car from a number of perspectives: as an object of worship and symbol of personal freedom, as an invention by which man conquered time and space, and as a solution to the problem of mobility, not only the material mobility but also that of signs. Above all, the intention of the authors was to show the car as a mirror of all processes and changes in society. Paweł Wocial’s works were accompanied by interpretations of such artists as: Peter Weibel, Erwin Wurm, Li Hui, Franz Ackermann, Ant Farm, Folke Kobberling, Martin Kaltwasser, Olaf Mooij, Tobias Rehberger, Yin Xiuzhen.
