EUROPE Exhibition Remuneration Right in Europe 2018


“Across Europe, visual artists are often the last to get paid for the exhibition of their work in public and, even if they are, payments are low.

A collaborative international move to remunerate the creators of such important work would not only respect the labour rights of visual artists as workers who are paid, but also make arranging exhibitions easier and make it easier for artists to create. Comparing the exhibition payment systems for visual artists in different countries, as well as the successes and reasoningbehind individual countries’ campaigns would enable artists associations to grasp whichstrategies in the establishment of fair remuneration have worked or might work in future. The benefits of “best-practice” models might encourage increased professionalisation, and a higher quality and greater variety of work.”
