Zik group was founded in 1985 by several artists, most of them graduates of the Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem. In 1990, the non-profit organization Zik for Visual Arts was established, which is still active. Since then the group has also had its own studio spaces. Throughout the years, central activity modes have been preserved: joint interdisciplinary work, relying on regular meetings, and focusing most saliently on the development of sculptural structures and concepts into live performances. The passing years have also seen significant changes: the group shifted from large outdoor performances to indoor ones, and keeps wandering between them; its visual design work, independent of performance, has expanded; group membership has grown, their professions have become more varied, and the group has turned to new directions – cinema, new media, and integral combinations of sculpture, performance, music and sound.
