Written especially for professional artists and those studying the visual arts, Law for Artists is an accessible guide to those aspects of law that impact on artists and their work. It encompasses a comprehensive range of creative practices including fine art, photography, the graphic and plastic arts, animation, illustration, applied and media arts, as well as fashion, textile and product design.Blue Tirohl clearly explains the legal principles - such as intellectual property, censorship, freedom of expression, and criminal law - that are relevant to artists working in a range of disciplines. In order to illustrate these key concepts, the book includes an engaging collection of examples of artists who have come into conflict with the law, demonstrating precisely the challenges faced by creative practitioners.
