Every year, two FATexhibitions are staged on a wall surface of approx. 70 metres. These are curated by the FATart curatorial team, consisting of Martina Venanzoni (art historian), Ursina Gabriela Roesch (artist) and Maja Renfer (Culture, Criticism & Curation student).

An exhibition text is published for each exhibition and a vernissage is organised at which the artist is present. A discussion with the artist will take place as part of the mediation programme.

The FATecke exhibition format took place at the Kosmos Kulturzentrum in Zurich until December 2022 and will continue in Schaffhausen from June 2023.

On an exhibition "corner" of 20 metres, right at the entrance of the space, an artist is given the opportunity to present her work. Four exhibitions are planned per year, each lasting just under three months. An exhibition text is published for each exhibition and a vernissage is organised at which the artist is present. A discussion with the artist will take place as part of the mediation programme.

Under the two new formats FATpower and FATacademy, various series of events are planned with an in-depth examination of topics such as feminism, postcolonialism or intersectionality and mini-workshops for and with people from our community.

 

There will also be space for regular table events and regular Wikimedia sessions to strengthen the visibility of women in the digital media and to actively close the "women's data gap".

bar & concerts

A café/bar is planned and can be run by FAT or by external persons.


Occasionally, the bar will be supplemented with concerts or DJs. In particular, young bands, DJs and DJanes from Schaffhausen should be given the opportunity to perform.

It is important to us to enliven the 4th floor of Kammgarn West and the presence of different people around the focus of interest of visibility of women artists and diversity.

The booths on the 4th floor are ideal for offering temporary guest studios for people working in the arts and culture in various fields.

These in turn can independently organise events, talks or small exhibitions.

The allocation of studio spaces is conceivable for a period of 1-3 months or for a longer allocation until the end of the temporary use.
