Key elements of the art ecosystem and the artist’s professional practice

This seminary aims to build a reflexive and mediated approach to the legal aspects of the art world in the state context – some of which are currently such as the Statute of the Artist, the Patronage Law, economic activity or copyright -, themes that are constantly being debated, open to dialogue and to the contributions of the creators themselves. Necessary elements to know and analyze in order to move in the artistic field with a holistic conception of their spaces and relations.

The United Nations as a Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) adopted the “Recommendation concerning the Status of the Artist” in 1980. It states that the arts are an integral part of life and that it is necessary for governments to contribute to creating the material conditions that facilitate these manifestations. Culture also has added value in terms of its contribution to GDP, with the capacity to employ a significant proportion of the working population.

The cultural sector has, however, been demanding for more than forty years the establishment of a legal framework that assures the artist the necessary conditions for the development of his activity. The Statute of the Artist, the Author/Creator and the Cultural Worker can be that legislative tool that allows to guarantee economic and labour rights to cultural workers or to facilitate them; even though the Patronage Law can help to promote, assist, stimulate and/or promote cultural and artistic expressions with private contribution.
