Symposium 'Exhibition Remuneration Right in Europe 2018'
The IAA Europe, together with the IGBK, the German collecting society VG Bild-Kunst, and the association European Visual Artists (EVA), organized the symposium ‘Exhibition Remuneration Right in Europe 2018‘ in 2018 in Brussels.
It facilitated an exchange on national and regional remuneration models, guidelines and campaigns and drew attention to the 'equity gap' that exists in the visual arts. The IAA Europe Executive Committee will continue working on this issue in the coming years.
