Fugara art collective members, Shlomi Mir and Matan Zohar, share their personal stories and insights on how creation and cooperation are intertwined, what it means to be or become a member of a collective, their group dynamic and the creative process.

About the speaker

Fugara is an interdisciplinary group of artists, designers, and makers creating interactive and immersive experiences through large scale installations. Their tools are wood, metal, electronics, light, sound and fire. The installations guide journeys of discovery, connecting participants to each other, to concepts and to themselves.

They approach their work in a collaborative participation model. Decisions are made collaboratively during weekly meetings. Membership is defined primarily by participation and skill, with each member bringing their own unique background and experience to the table.

Fugara was founded in 2014 by core members of the group who participated in projects within the newborn Israeli Burning Man community “Midburn”.
