Touring artists: Information for artists working internationally

A workshop by the Internationale Gesellschaft der Bildenden Künste (IGBK) in cooperation with Deutscher Künstlerbund

(lifePR) (Berlin, ) Tuesday, June 19, 2014, 5 pm at the project space of the Deutscher Künstlerbund, Markgrafenstr. 67, 10969 Berlin, with Christine Heemsoth (IGBK)

Mobility is a central aspect of artistic work. Collecting new impressions, exchanging ideas with colleagues abroad as well as the continuous redefinition of own positions are part of the process. With an increase in international mobility artists do not only face a ‘jungle’ of support schemes and grants, also the need for secure information regarding social law, taxation and insurance issues or administrative procedures is growing, both, within and beyond EU borders.

Whether foreigner tax, procedure for returned goods, health insurance coverage or travel support: the online tool offers visual and performing artists profound information on the topics taxation, social security, visas, customs, insurances and financial support related to cross-border mobility.

You are kindly invited to join a presentation of the website (in German language!) at the project space of the Deutscher Künstlerbund in Berlin on June 19. Furthermore the question will be discussed how artists are using the provided (online) information - where are the limits, what would be useful in addition? Despite reliable information, it is often the details that make the difference. is a joint project of IGBK and the International Theatre Institute (ITI) Germany, initiated and supported by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media (BKM).
