What are the obstacles faced by mobile artists working in Europe across countries with regard to social security insurance issues? And to what extent did the information systems for freelance artists in Europe improve over the last years?
These questions have been discussed in November 2016 at the Berliner Haus der Kulturverbände. National Committees of the International Association of Art (IAA) Europe, service points, European networks, social security organisations, the EU Commission, the Federal Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs and further experts were present. A second part of the event focused on the exchange of current questions with regard to social security systems for visual artists on the national level.
