The issue of photograph rights and copyrights in the digital age has been receiving much attention in recent times. This is focussing increasingly on the desire to engage with the general uncertainty by means of a solution-oriented approach.
With the support of the Ministry for Culture and Science of North Rhine Westphalia, and in collaboration with the cultural scientist Wolfgang Ullrich, Marta Herford will hold a two-day conference on 14 and 15 September at the Marta-Forum. In an lively discussion, artists and scientists as well as legal experts, art educators and bloggers will have their say. The aim is to elaborate practical, fair and feasible recommendations that respect the pictures of art equally as individual creation and general cultural asset.
