How can I become a member of IGBK?
IGBK has three members by statute: Deutscher Künstlerbund, GEDOK, and Berufsverband Bildender Künstlerinnen und Künstler/BBK. Individual artists can become member of one of these organisations, and eventually get engaged in IGBKs activities through that. IGBK acts as the German National Committee for the International Association of Art/IAA Europe.
Have a look at the information portal www.touring-artists.info, our joint project with the International Theatre Institute (ITI) Germany. The website provides information on visas and residence, transport and customs, taxes, social insurance, and copyright related to cross-border mobility for artists working internationally. The project is supported by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media.
