Calculation model of minimum remuneration

Calculation model of artists’ fees per artist and per exhibition

The amounts are minimum payments from which parties can negotiate upwards. It consists of a fixed production fee and a periodic usage fee. The amount depends on the nature of the work, the duration of the exhibition, and the number of participating artists. Institutes with a turnover of more than 500,000 are expected to reasonably increase the fees by common accord with the artists. The minimum amounts can be computed by means of the calculator.
