At the same time, they conceived Mugatxoan in 1998, a training project dedicated to research and creation the practice of which Mugatxoan attributes to the relationships produced between the immaterial object and the spectator, locating the production of these devices in the realm of performance and its offshoots. Their performances and videos have been presented in many different European venues including: GoGo, Caja Roja y lucía con zeta (1998), Flyball, Boj de largo (2000), ASTRA TOUR (2003-2004), Extras de artificio (2005), BAT, Beautiful Animals Trying (2006), and Sin título, en colores (2010). He has given a large number of workshops and seminars and has acted as tutor for the works of several different young artists.

In 2015, they received the Gure Artea award from Mugatxoan in recognition of the activity carried out in the realm of visual arts.
