Art Group 705 is an artist collective and group of friends working with performance, theater plays, animation and organizing gatherings. Self-reflection, self-criticism, and analysis of the everyday environment are important methods for the group. They have a great affinity to the theater of absurd as well as documentary theater. While the group's animations also focus on the social issues in the local context, and are available to view on their website.

The project Kitchen Promeeting explores the integration of the kitchen, activism and art. A meal is cooked in a public space and served by members of the group to workers, volunteers and spectators. During the meal, there are theater performances with elements of participation and improvisation, along with the screening of animation.
