IAA Europe, IGBK, the German collecting society VG Bild-Kunst, and the association European Visual Artists (EVA) are organizing a European symposium on ‘Exhibition Remuneration Right‘ on November 22, 2018 in Brussels.
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 issue of exhibition remuneration has been an important topic for artists' associations throughout Europe for years. The symposium will present existing guidelines and campaigns. In addition, an exchange shall 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').
It is also an 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.
In this respect the IAA Europe Executive Committee calls for good practice examples of exhibition remuneration!
The programme of the symposium will shortly be made available here.
