Good to know
Unlike a commercial 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 women artists who cannot pay a recruitment fee by providing them with space.
Participation in the FATart Fair enables them to make the leap into the public eye. In this way, commissions can be generated without having to wait for a gallery. The artists are on site and responsible for their artworks and their sale themselves. True to the motto: FINTAS are themselves.
