Coffee Club with Touring Artists

February 4, 2021
at 11:00 am

For our Coffee Club in February, Felix Sodemann will be our guest and will introduce us to Touring Artists, an information portal for artists and creatives working internationally.

Touring Artists provides comprehensive information on visas/residence, artist status and contracts, transport/customs, taxes, social security, other insurances, and copyright.

The website gives answers to questions regarding international mobility for artists, creatives and persons engaged in the cultural sector. Touring Artists primarily maps the circumstances, legal regulations, and administrative procedures in Germany – for foreign artists and creatives who work here temporarily and for Germany-based artists and creatives who work abroad for a limited time. Since 2018, the project International Artists Info Berlin (IAIB) aims at supporting artists, creatives and culture professionals who were forced to leave their home countries due to the political situation and are now residing in Germany. A comprehensive glossary, a mobility library, information concerning the German cultural landscape, a collection of country-specific, European and global information portals, an overview of artists’ residencies as well as a database of more than 300 programs in Germany supporting artist mobility complement the portal.

In addition, Touring Artists organizes a monthly meet-up, offers individual, free consultations and helps with checklists, references to further reading, contact persons and responsible offices in the relevant administrations.

During the Coffee Club, Felix Sodemann will introduce us to the information and advice offered by Touring Artists and talk to us about what artists and creative professionals need to keep in mind when working internationally.

The Coffee Club is an open meeting for everyone in the film industry. After the introduction of our guest, you will have the opportunity to ask questions, exchange ideas and get to know each other.

For organizational reasons, we ask you for an informal registration via email to

The event will be held in English, but questions can be asked in German and English.
