F.O.T.A. (in Favor Of The Artist) is a collective founded by architect Joris Kerremans (°1990) and curator Laurens Mariën (°1990).
F.O.T.A. wants to develop structures/frameworks in which they act both as artist and curator. To collaborate and to support other artists is a necessary condition within their production. By doing so, the result gets a bivalent reason to exist: as a physical object with spatial features on the one hand and as a platform for critical practice on the other.
By combining both their experience as architect and curator, F.O.T.A. aims to fundamentally think and re-think spaces, formats, discourses and institutions.
