You can register for participation here until 10 October 2022 (in German).

IGBK and the Brexit Infopoint invite you to an online networking meeting Germany - UK on 11 October 2022.

We ask visual artists, artists' associations and -residencies, etc. about their experiences with cross-border collaborations, exhibitions, residencies, etc. in the United Kingdom after it has left the European Union and now that new administrative issues are arising.

We would like to talk with you about your experiences and at the same time find out what support actors in the visual arts scene need in order to be able to continue collaborations and residencies. Please note the meeting is in German, but questions and comments in English are of course very welcome!

  • Tax aspects (withholding tax, sales tax)
  • Drafting of contracts

We will also present the work of the new Brexit Infopoint at the meeting.

The Brexit Infopoint (BIP) offers know-how for creative activities between Germany and the United Kingdom.

Since summer 2022, the BIP informs and advises artists, creatives and organizers on administrative issues in cross-border work.

The event will be held in German.

The organisation On the Move (OTM) supports artists and culture professionals to operate internationally and works on reimagining cultural mobility as fairer, and more sustainable and inclusive. ITI Germany, IGBK and Dachverband Tanz are members of OTM.

Within OTM, the network of Mobility Information Points (MIP) has joined forces. MIP are information centres and/or websites tackling administrative challenges facing artists and culture professionals when working across borders. Key issues are e.g. visa, social insurance, taxes, customs.

MIPs exist in several European countries and one in the USA. The partner organisations are central contact points for artists and organisers when it comes to administrative issues of international mobility in relation to their respective countries. As the German MIP, touring artists is part of this important network.

The Brexit Infopoint is a cooperation of the International Theatre Institute (ITI) Germany, the Internationale Gesellschaft der Bildenden Künste and the Dachverband Tanz Deutschland, within the framework of touring artists. It is funded by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media.
