Diskusija - What Do Artists Want. ART and LAW

::LV::

1971. gadā kurators, izdevējs, bibliogrāfs un kolekcionārs Sets Sīgelaubs (Seth Siegelaub) ar advokāta Roberta Projanskī (Robert Projansky) palīdzību uzrakstīja ‘’Mākslinieku aizsargāto tiesību līgumu’’, kas bija veidots tā, lai pārstāvētu mākslinieku ekonomiskās intereses, īpaši mākslas darbu tālākpārdošanas, reproducēšanas vai deponēšanas gadījumos – paredzēts, lai kalpotu kā visiem māksliniekiem pieejams līgums, kas uzrakstīts viegli saprotamā valodā. Tas tika izplatīts plašsaziņas līdzekļos un iztulkots daudzās valodās. Līgumu izmanto vēl joprojām, taču par spīti tam autortiesības, pārdošanas tiesības, apdrošināšana un citi mākslinieku ikdienas darbā svarīgi juridiski temati Latvijas mākslas vides kontekstā liek uzdot daudz svarīgus jautājumus – kuram būtu jāsedz apdrošināšana? Kā novērtēt, kāda ir darba vērtība? Kā rīkoties gadījumā, ja darbs ir bojāts, taču nav apdrošināšanas un līguma? Vai vienošanās e-pastā ir leģitīma utt.?

5. februārī, plkst. 18.00 VV Foundation aicina uz trešo cikla ''What do artists want?'' sarunu par un ap mākslinieku tiesību jautājumiem ISSP Galerijā. Diskusijas sākumā BDO law jurists un mākslas tiesību jautājumu speciālists Rolands Žīgurs sniegs ieskatu jautājumos, kas saistīti ar autortiesībām.

Diskusija notiks latviešu valodā.
Ieeja bez maksas. Vietu skaits ir ierobežots, tāpēc aicinām ierasties laicīgi.

::ENG::

In 1971, curator, publisher, bibliographer and collector Seth Siegelaub with the help of lawyer Robert Projansky wrote The Artist’s Reserved Rights Transfer and Sale Agreement, which was crafted with the aim of representing artists’ economical rights, especially in cases of resale, reproduction and loaning of the work of art – intended to serve as an agreement available to all artists and written in a easy to understand language. It was distributed through mass media and translated into many languages. The agreement remains in use, yet in spite of this fact many important questions regarding copyright, resale rights, insurance and other legal issues important in artists’ daily work remain open in the context of the Latvian art scene – who should cover insurance costs? How to determine the value of the work? What to do in a situation when the work is damaged yet there is no insurance or agreement? Is an agreement through e-mail legally binding etc.?

On February 5 at 18.00 VV Foundation invites you to take part in the third discussion in the cycle "What do artists want?" about and around questions regarding artists’ rights, taking place at the ISSP Gallery.

Before the discussion, attorney at BDO Law and expert on arts law Rolands Žīgurs will give an overview of questions related to copyright.

The discussion will be held in Latvian.
