The FATart team

Ursina Gabriela Roesch (she/her)

Co-founder, President, Project manager

 

The former function of the artist Ursina Gabriela Roesch as curator for the women power exhibition “144 Zurich artists in Zurich” in 2016 is inspiring and formative for the commitment to FATart. The exhibition showed how present, but still extraordinary, the topic of women is in art. From the opening speech by Bice Curiger, former curator of the Kunsthaus Zürich:

"(...) We owe this lush and finely ramified overview to Ursina Gabriela Roesch, who has taken care of the organization and selection of the works with great dedication over the past four months (without salary) - she deserves applause."

She directs her focus on works of art and communication-oriented projects and assignments. See www.urgart.com .

Mark Damon Harvey (er)
Co-founder, expert intersectionality

 

As an artist, teacher and organizational developer, he works as an expert and intersectionality at FATart. He leads workshops, which thematically range from dealing with prejudices, from integration strategies to men's work. The consideration of these topics is part of the expanded focus of FATart. He teaches the short workshop “Practical Allyship: More than anti-racism” weekly in the Zurich KOSMOS book salon as well as various day workshops, for example in the Zurich anvil ramp. The common denominator in his career and in his functions in FAT is black and afro-feminism and the search for collaborations across cultural and gender-related barriers. Connected to this are his creative activities as a musician, cult jewelry and land art designer (Edible Landscapes). See www.transculture.ch
