Doma is an artist collective formed in 1998 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Their production is characterized by a critical and biting view on reality’s absurdity. They focus on where contradiction and paradox reside.
Their work is formed by various formats, using 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.
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.
In 2002 they were invited to show at MALBA Museum of Contemporary Art in Argentina. That same year they won Ruth Benzacar Gallery’s "Curriculum Cero" award.
Between 2004 and 2005 they became allies of the mythic experimental animation signal The Locomotion Channel. They are the creators of Coloso in Tecnópolis (Buenos Aires) and their 2007’s Kidrobot Dummy is featured in MOMA’s permanent collection. In 2011 they collaborated in projects with the artist Leon Ferrari. Doma compiled its young actions in a premium hardcover book called “DOMA_17” published in 2015 by KBB Publishers. In 2018 they exhibited "Naturaleza Muerta" a show of 600 square meters in the Recoleta Center in Buenos Aires.
