The issue of exhibition remuneration has been an important topic for artists' associations throughout Europe for years. The symposium "Exhibition Remuneration Right in Europe", which takes place on November 22, 2018 in Brussels, presents existing guidelines and campaigns. In addition, an exchange will take place on national and regional models that have already been successfully put into practice (e.g. the MU Agreement in Sweden or the so-called "Berlin Model").
Important goal of the symposium: to make policy and administration aware of the subject of exhibition remuneration at EU level and to draw attention to the "equity gap" that exists in the visual arts.
The symposium is organized by the IAA Europe, IGBK, the German collecting society VG Bild-Kunst, and the association European Visual Artists (EVA). Sabine Verheyen (MEP), Member of the Committee on Culture and Education of the European Parliament will act as patroness for the event. Further partners are Culture Action Europe and the German Initiative Ausstellungsvergütung.
The programme is availble here (pdf).
A broschure, collecting information on models, initiatives, and campaigns thoughout Europe and beyond will shortly be ready for download from here.
