5 reasons to take part in the FATart Fair as an artist

Good to know

  • In contrast to a commercial fair, FATart Fair does not profit from the sales of works. Instead, the artists represent themselves and receive all of their sales proceeds.

  • For a low exhibition fee , FATart covers the costs for exhibition space, marketing, advertising, catalog publication, supporting events, coordination and wages. The concept of FATart is based on keeping the financial expenses and ecological emissions as low as possible, because only low cost sharing enables many artists to take part.

  • Every year FATart subsidizes five to ten artists who cannot pay the fee by providing them with appropriate exhibition space.

  • Due to the presence in an exhibition catalog and the radical decision to give 100% of the profit to the artists, the FATart Fair creates not only perspectives but also opportunities.
