FATFORM is an artproject that challenges the idea of a traditional platform at the same time as it uses its basic functionality. Local and international artists meet, exchange, exhibit and perform together at one of the best underground locations in Amsterdam: The rooftop of the Kraaiennest Shopping Centre in Amsterdam-Zuidoost. With an experimental cross programming different audiences are attracted from various fields such as contemporary art, hip hop, new media, performance and noize and are encouraged (or basically forced) to at least have a peek at the other.

We see this project as an experiment to find a form that is open enough to have space for our diverse and often non-compatible networks. It is important for us to not try to minimize these incompatibilities but rather we would like to propose a form that is FAT enough to contain all radicals.
