On June 16, 2017 the Executive Committee of IAA Europe met in Berlin. Points of discussion were IAA Europe’s General Assembly 2017, which will take place in September in Dublin. The director of the host Visual Artists Ireland Noel Kelly was present at the meeting.


Also planned activities for the year 2018 were addressed: Among other things a remake of the IGBK project Art Swap Europe (2008), a forum for the presentation of and exchange amongst artist-run exhibition initiatives in Europe. The remake will tackle the question what kind of developments such places have experienced within the last ten years.

  • Workshop ‘Social security and artists’ mobility in Europe’

    What are the obstacles faced by mobile artists working in Europe across countries with regard to social security insurance issues? And to what extent did the information systems for freelance artists in Europe improve over the last years?

    These questions have been discussed in November 2016 at the Berliner Haus der Kulturverbände. National Committees of the International Association of Art (IAA) Europe, service points, European networks, social security organisations, the EU Commission, the Federal Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs and further experts were present. A second part of the event focused on the exchange of current questions with regard to social security systems for visual artists on the national level.

    IGBK published a documentation of the workshop. Please find it here: Social Security and Mobility - workshop documentation.pdf.
