Back in 1999 me with my friends established a group called meatex Z. It united artists and musicians and the aim of the group was to create contemporary multimedia art. We claim that every art purpose is entertainment and a modern work of art should incorporate visual and audible components, as well as involve the spectator in some sort of interaction.

This led the group to the form of performance as the main medium for the group activities. Usually different members of the group work with different aspects. Almost every performance features specially made costumes, sound devices, artwork and theatrical happening.

Important to mention that most of the performances feature many people and it's hard to say who is a member of meatex Z and who is not.
