ft (federica teti, 1985, Italy) architect and visual artist works in the field of urban practice and experimental art education. She collaborates with art collectives, cultural associations, theaters, and schools, and has been involved in many interdisciplinary projects working with children, women, and young adults (from refugee and non-refugee backgrounds). Drawings and graphic design are central tools in her practice, she is interested in developing visuals, info-graphics and fanzines as non academic tools of learning. She worked on many independent publications as graphic designer. She also makes graphic recordings.

2016-2022 ft worked mainly as artistic duo under the name ftts together with the sculptor and performer todosch schlopsnies until he suddenly passed away in 2022. Our work focused on the substance of public spaces as a potential site for encounters, diversity, and inclusion. “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).

2020-2022 ftts was artistic directions of “Stadtwerk mrzn” a project of “S27 – Art and Education” and a campus for urban practice in Berlin-Marzahn.

2021 ft graduated at “Institute for Art in Context – UdK Berlin” with baustelle urbane praxis in marzahn an “academic-fanzine”. The book narrates the urban practice at “Stadtwerk mrzn” and presents the theoretical backgrounds of this field of action. The aim of the work is to make visions and strategies for the preservation and development of the city as “our” living space accessible to a different audience.
