Congress ‘The writing art historian’
On Friday the 2nd of October 2009 the congress, ‘The writing art historian. Issues in the writing profession in the art, culture and heritage sector’, will be held in the auditorium of the RKD.
Much is written on art, culture and heritage. Both amateurs and professionals - freelancers, independents and institution employees – write regularly on these subjects. Together they are responsible on an annual basis for hundreds of articles in newspapers and magazines, catalogues and books on the visual arts, design and architecture. However, they are not always fully aware of the rights and obligations which result from being an author.
During the congress experts will give insight into various issues which are of much interest to the authors as well as their sponsors and publishers. Problems concerning such issues as copyright, lending and reproduction rights fees, publications under personal management and subsidies will be explained by representatives from various fields.
