Touring Artists | artists mobility portal launched in Germany


touring artists, an information portal for internationally mobile artists, has been launched in Germany. It provides comprehensive information on visas/residencetransport/customstaxessocial securityother insurances, and copyright for both outgoing and incoming artists.

Through a joint project of the German Centre of the International Theatre Institute (ITI) and the Internationale Gesellschaft der Bildenden Künste (IGBK; English: International Association of Art (IAA) in Germany), these topics have been examined for both the performing arts and the visual arts.

touring artists primarily maps the circumstances, legal regulations, and administrative procedures in Germany – for foreign artists who work here temporarily and for German artists or artists who live in Germany and who work abroad for a limited time. It also considers the perspective of Germany-based organisers.

The website is available in English and German.
