PROFESSIONALS STAGE (Hall 4.1, Booth K-50)


In an introductory fashion, the tasks and function of the artists's social insurance fund and its two main task areas of social insurance for artists and the social security contributions of artists will be presented. The lecture will then sketch the basic principles of artists' social insurance and its advantages. In the area of artists' social security contributions, the possible dual position of the photographer as an insured party on the one hand and as subject to the payment of contributions on the other will be addressed. Here the lecture deals with the question of which positions should be subject to contributions from the perspective of the photographer.
