F2F CASE STUDIES
Our aim with F2F (Foundation 2 Foundation) is to provide a resource for our members to connect and share their experiences and knowledge in a useful way. Therefore, we will build a library of case studies around each topic raised, that can be used whenever necessary to assist with change.

I would like to ask you: how do you handle this topic within your institutions?
“In the wake of the current pandemic, several public programs to support artists in a no-income situation have been launched in Germany. To consider artists’ work as a form of labour that is to be financially remunerated with a fee seems to be less of a basic principle in other times, especially when it comes to visual artists’ fees within institutional exhibitions. Most commonly, the only form of remuneration for artists arises from the sale of works or the use of images of those works. With the current crisis, the pressure on institutions to address this issue is growing. In KAI 10, we are currently discussing models of financial compensation for the participating artists in our exhibitions.”
