Good to know
Unlike a commercial art fair, FATart Fair does not claim a profit from the sale of artworks. Instead, the artists represent themselves and receive their sales proceeds in full.
In exchange for low fees, FATart covers the costs of marketing, advertising, catalogue publication, fringe events, coordination and salaries. Our concept is based on keeping the financial expenses and ecological emissions as low as possible, because it is the low contribution to costs that allows many women artists to participate.
Each year, FATart supports between five and ten FLINTA artists who cannot pay an application fee by providing them with floor- or wallspace at the art fair. For further information, contact the FAT office.
Participation in the FATart Fair enables you to rise and reach the wider public. As a result, commissions can be generated without having to wait for a gallery. Artists are on site and fully responsible for their own artworks and sales, thus living the FATart value of autonomy and taking charge.
