Open Source: Artists’ Fair Pay
3rd May 2023
Open Source: Artists’ Fair Pay with Lindsay Seers and Rune Peitersen
Thursday 11th May 4-5pm
In Open Source livestream #2: Artists’ Fair Pay, artists Lindsay Seers (Kent) and Rune Peitersen (Amsterdam) share their ongoing efforts to establish a fair benchmark for paying artists, continuing this series of one-to-one livestreams as part of our VisualiSE programme. The artists will discuss, take questions, and share some advice from their own experience.
How are artists and their allies organising to advocate for this cause? How has the debate shifted against the backdrop of the Covid crisis and budget pressures for both workers and institutions in the sector. Might the Netherlands’ visual arts sector provide the model for a non-exploitative pay deal?

About the Artists
Rune Peitersen, born in Denmark in 1971, lives and works in Amsterdam (NL) and Brussels (BE). Next to his artistic practice, Peitersen teaches at the St. Joost Art Academy and is a member of the supervisory board of the Mondriaan Fund. In 2012 he cofounded the active think-tank Platform Beeldende Kunst (Platform for Visual Arts) and was part of the working group developing the Dutch Guideline for Artists’ Fees, which was introduced in 2017.
Lindsay Seers is a British artist based in Kent, on the Isle of Sheppey. She is best known for her video installations and the hundreds of images she has produced using her own body as a camera. These works explore complex ideas and situations through elliptical narratives that are shaped by an evolving set of connections and coincidences that the act of making evokes. Her works are in a number of collections including Tate collection. She is represented by Matt’s Gallery. Lindsay is also co-founder of FRANK Fair Artist Pay which pioneers much needed change to fair practice and fair pay for artists in the UK.
