Burning Progeny

This project is a study of the European adaptation of Burning Man, a unique event that has evolved from a fire arts gathering held annually in the Black Rock Desert, Nevada, into a transnational movement with a regional presence in over 35 countries. A four-year collaborative multisited ethnography, supported by the University of Fribourg and the Swiss National Science Foundation, the project will chart the translation of Burning Man's Ten Principles in regional events in Europe, providing the first extensive study of this self-organising event-centered movement.
