An introduction to law for artists whose artistic practices are outside the more traditional, such as conceptual, appropriation or installation art. Do installations attract copyright? How can you protect your work from being copied or stolen even if it's just an idea to be executed by others? How can you ensure it is properly displayed and you are credited? What do you need to look out for in contracts? Do you need permission to display or perform your work? This seminar will introduce you to the finer aspects of copyright law and show you ways of protecting your work. Don't miss an interesting discussion…
