The Island
Present Forever


FATFORM is an ongoing art project on the rooftop of the Kraaiennest Shopping Centre in Amsterdam -Zuidoost that was started by
Daniela Bershan, Robert Dupic, Kaleb de Groot and Jonas Ohlsson in 2010.

The first FATFORM happened July 24th until August 1st 2010 on the rooftop of the Kraaiennest Shopping Centre

The police has shut us down the first weekend but the second weekend we were back strong, even more beautiful and legal! In total we had about 800 guests from Bijlmer, Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte, Curitiba, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Delft, Brussels, Antwerpen, New York, Stockholm, Saarbruecken, Hamburg, Paramaribo, Paris and more…
Many collaborations between artists from different backgrounds and disciplines took place and will take place in the future. Uncountable discussions were held on art, music, politics and life.
It was a magical experience that felt honest and real and now that it is over much more like a beginning than an end.
We would like to thank you all for the amazing support you have given us and hope to be welcoming you back in the future. Below you find some impressions of FATFORM.

FUMACE – Parade through the Bijlmer by Alexandre Vogler

It has been a bumpy start for FATFORM last weekend. The FUMACE had an accident and was stopped by the police so it never arrived here at Kraaiennest.On Sunday the 1st of August from 15:00 – 16:00 the Brazilian Artist Alexandre Vogler will give it another shot to drive through the Bijlmer with his work FUMACE – a herbal mass cleansing street parade through the Bijlmer which will arrive back at the FATFORM around 16:00 o’clock.

One of the exhibition spaces at the first weekend. A.o. works by Magnus Moonfeldt, Jonas Ohlsson, Carlos A. de Mattos

The spirit was so great that even when the police shut us down the program went on in the VINGER studio @Kruitberg. It was the skinny form but it was FAT!!! Sensiriti Sound played with Phantom and Nedra plus some new kids on the block showed their talent. Thumbs up for the Bijlmer!
