ft (federica teti, b. 1985, Italy) architect, visual artist.
She works in the field of urban practice and experimental art education. Her practice focuses on the substance of public space as a potential site for encounters and inclusion indulging in collective work, DIY and learning. She collaborates with art collectives, cultural associations, theaters, and schools. She has been working on interdisciplinary projects together with children, women, and young adults from refugee and non-refugee backgrounds. Drawings and graphics are central tools in her practice; she is interested in developing visuals, infographics, and fanzines as non-academic tools for learning and transferring complex contents.

From 2016 to 2022 ft worked mainly as artistic duo under the name ftts. ftts was federica teti and the sculptor and performer todosch schlopsnies (b. 1966-2022). He passed away very unexpectedly in December 2022. “In workshops of varied format, we build, garden, invent, and play. The main focus, besides creating the direct experience of cultural participation across all boundaries of origin and language, is to achieve something together that would never have been possible alone, and to also have fun while doing it.” (ts).
