Residency

Description

Akiyoshidai International Art Village has supported cultural and philosophical exchange among international artists through the artists in residence program since its inauguration in 1998. The aim of the Residence Support Program is to support young artists’ experimental artistic activities, crossing the borders of art disciplines and nationalities. The artists will be carefully selected by the Selection Committee of the Residence Program of Akiyoshidai International Art Village. They encourage selected artists will actively communicate with local people in Yamaguchi, participate in different projets, including workshops, lectures, school visits and exhibitions.

Its Artist in residence program invites artists for a time away from their usual environment and obligations to work on their own creative activities. Through open calls, Akiyoshidai International Art Village (AIAV) currently offers:

  • fully funded long-term program called “Residence Support Program”,
  • and partly funded short-term program called “Fellowship Program” with which artists are encouraged to apply for outside funding resources.

Akiyoshidai International Art Village, designed by the architect, Arata Isozaki, was founded in 1998 with the aim of providing a platform for artists in residence as well as for a variety of art forms and cultural activities. AIAV’s main hall has a capacity of approximately 300 and its residence hall can house 100, and the village also features a restaurant, seminar room, studios, gallery, and café.

AIAV is located far away from the noise of everyday city life and is surrounded by natural resources. Isozaki himself referred to it as an “archipelago”, (an expanse of water with many scattered islands), and it consists of many different facilities. The term ‘village’ suggests that AIAV is not a one monolithic structure but rather a collective of small neighboring buildings reminiscent of a traditional Japanese village.

Outcome

The artist is requested:

  • to participate in all pubic programs, e.g. open studio, presentations and talks and to create new work.
  • to participate in the exchange programs for local community, e.g. talks, lectures and outreach programs.
  • to provide images and documentations, e.g. pictures and videos, for publicity and archiving in accordance with AIAV’s request.
  • to take part in educational programs at local schools and universities in English or Japanese.
  • to present the results of the residence program, e.g. exhibitions, reviews or talks outside Japan within a year after the program.

COPYRIGHT

COPYRIGHT

Despite numerous efforts at the European level, copyright in Europe has not been fully harmonized. When working abroad within the European Union (and even more so in countries outside the EU), artists are usually confronted with different legal situations than in their home countries. In addition to the agreements and policies that have been created at the European level that shape the national legal norms in Europe, there are a number of international agreements, the so-called Revised Bern Convention, the Universal Copyright Convention, and, in the context of the WTO/GATS, the so-called TRIPS Agreement.

However, EU harmonization has taken place in some areas of copyright. The resale right, which is so important for the visual arts, for example, has been harmonized by a directive, which grants certain countries transition periods for implementation. This concerns, for example, the UK, an important marketplace for auctions.

The directive on the harmonization of certain aspects of copyright and related rights in the information society from the year 2001 aimed to adapt copyright regulations to the requirements of technological development. In view of the wiggle room that member states have with regard to the implementation, and also because not all defined limits (s. Limitations to copyright) are mandatory, one can hardly speak of complete harmonization. This link (in German) provides an overview of the implementation in the context of the so-called “first basket” and “second basket.”

The following websites offer an overview of the prevailing legal norms, as well as the ongoing discussions: Federal Ministry of Justice and for Consumer Protection (BMJV); European Commission, on resale rightWorld Intellectual Property OrganizationWIPO.

Example 1:
A German media artist wants to use excerpts of a video dance performance by a British artist for his/her installation. The British artist is not a member of a collecting society. (see administration of rights without collecting societies)

Example 2: 
A Brazilian theater that has seen a German theater play during a festival wants to adapt and translate the text of the play for performance in Brazil. The author is not represented by a publishing company or a collecting society. (see administration of rights without collecting societies)

INSURANCES

INSURANCES

Insurance issues are of great importance for international visual and performing artists. Almost all insurances are voluntary (with a few exceptions, such as automobile insurance and statutory health insurance for employees) and the self-employed are faced with different insurance issues than traditional employees – for example, the need for professional liability insurance. Often, artists are only confronted with these issues in case of problems or if the foreign partner demands proof of insurance.

Example 1:
A dance troupe from Germany is invited to France for guest performances on four evenings. The French organizer requests proof of a particular engineering insurance for these performances, as well as organizer’s liability insurance with a coverage of €300,000, which the troupe does not have. What are the options? (see organizer’s liability insurance)

Example 2:
During an exhibition in Berlin, the work of an Italian artist is stolen. What insurance would apply here?
 (see exhibition insurance/insurance of works of art)

 

Insurance requirements for international artists and organizers

Artists and organizers have to decide what risks they can and want to obtain coverage for. Job-related insurance includes professional liability insurance, organizer’s liability insurance, and possibly insurance plans that protect against damages that arise especially as a result of transport. Non-professional health insurances, accident insurances, and disability insurances, as well as liability insurances are personal insurances but no less important.

These insurances are sometimes valid Europe-wide or even worldwide. The geographical scope of the insurance must be adapted to the risk. This means that insurance policies need to be adjusted accordingly in the event of international activities. If an insurance policy has already been taken out, it should be reviewed and possibly expanded for worldwide coverage together with a broker or insurance agent.

The large number of insurance provider makes it difficult to navigate the wide range of insurance products and to find the most efficient coverage for one’s needs. Generally applicable recommendations are hardly possible. It is therefore advisable to contact an independent broker specialized in insurance for the cultural sector. Consultations are free.
