“Artists and farmers have something in common – they produce work that is highly valued by society but they are paid less and less for their work. Therefore campaigning for artists to be paid when they exhibit in publicly-funded galleries is necessary to create the public awareness about the precarious status of artists. Visarte Switzerland highly appreciates the Paying artist campaign and we will support a-n/AIR in every way we can. The topic is of great importance not only in the UK but should also be discussed on a European level.”
