Following a call for evidence by the UK government on the workings of the Artist’s Resale Right (ARR) in the UK, the Design and Artists Copyright Society (DACS) has launched a survey to gather the opinions of artists and artists’ estates.
Evidence from the survey will be fed back to the government and used in a periodic review of the ARR at EU level. The review seeks to understand the costs in administration of the ARR for the art market against its benefits for visual artists and their estates.
DACS is calling on artists and estates currently benefiting from ARR royalties to take part in the survey, as well as emerging artists who are likely to benefit from the ARR in the future.
DACS, who proactively campaigned for the introduction of the ARR in the UK and currently administers it for artists and estates, aims to demonstrate to the government the significant, positive impact it has to artists’ income, livelihoods and practice.
The survey is open until midnight on Monday 26 May. Take part in the survey here.
