Status of artists

The legal status of artists, creatives and persons engaged in the cultural sector varies from country to country, even within the European Union.

The following section explains aspects pertaining to artistic status in Germany.
It also provides further information on artistic status in other countries – in the form of links to the information portals of foreign organisations or relevant publications and points of contact.
We have created a list of questions which may arise if different legal positions ‘clash’ in the event of cross-border activities.
