Doma is an artist collective formed in 1998 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Its production is characterized by a critical and biting view on reality’s absurdity. Their focus is on where contradiction and paradox reside. Their work comprises various formats and interdisciplinary works harnessing different technologies, from miniature pieces to large-scale projects.
Ever since their origins in urban art, collaborative work, experimentation and DIY have been the axis of their practice.
The founding members of the group met at the Faculty of Architecture, Design and Urbanism (FADU), UBA, while studying Graphic Design and FilmMaking and upon graduating, working as professors. With the help of good fortune, drive and people around them, the domino effect has been ongoing until today. They have worked non-stop for 20 years trying to disrupt processes of symbolic perception, using the system’s own codes and looking for new viewpoints, actions and reactions. Nowadays, this collective speaks to a new process of contraction of capitalism and is devoted to producing content and work that will inspire, open people’s eyes and spread strength to cope with what’s going on in the world and what’s to come. Doma collective is currently run by Orilo Blandini and Julian Manzelli.
