Intervention, Institution, since 2017 (ongoing project)

Have you failed? Economically, artistically, does your Mommy like your art?
We, the FAILED ARTISTS INTERNATIONAL are here to discuss all the wonderful ways of failing. Join us and become a FAILED ARTIST today!

Learn all about the project:

FAILED ARTISTS INTERNATIONAL is an intervention that enables a critical, yet playful discussion of (artistic) failures. To become a failed artist, you need to sign up and describe your personal failure. If accepted, you will receive the membership button – and join the community of more than 300 certified failed artists.

Founded in 2017 by Florian Egermann, F.A.I. has been featured at festivals, art galleries and museums around the world. It is the leading network for failed artists.
