UND JETZT? – Art law at the Art Academy Düsseldorf

On 20.09.2023 Marie Wirtz (Art Law Clinic Münster) took part as a speaker in the exciting orientation event “AND NOW?”, which was aimed at graduates of art academies in NRW. The primary goal of the seminar was to support young creatives on their way to professionalising their art practice.

Over the course of two days, young artists were able to expand their knowledge of studio and practice management, the realities of the highly competitive art market and galleries, social security options via the artists’ social insurance fund and tax law.

The keynote lecture of the Art Law Clinic Münster was dedicated to the basics of art law – an area of law that is characterised by its strong target group orientation and can hardly be narrowed down thematically. The focus was on copyright law, the exploitation of works via traditional and digital channels, as well as on problems in the field of labour and data protection law that are virulent for artists.

The event opened up the space for honest questions, honest answers but also substantive controversies at eye level – for example on the professionalism of contracts in the art world.

The organisers deserve a lot of praise: LaB K – Franziska Wilmsen and Susanne Ristow – the Düsseldorf Art Academy and the Münster Art Academy! Thank you for the enriching insights and the warmth and off
