Since July 1, 2003, there is a new social status for artists.

The new status is no longer applicable only to performing artists but also to a broad range of both creative and performing artists.

As an artist, in the eyes of the social security office, you remain in principle an employed worker. Through the new ruling, you can challenge this presumption and become affiliated as a self-employed person. You must be able to demonstrate that you are not socio-economically dependent on a principal.

If, as an artist, you fall under the terms of the status for self-employed persons, the same insurance obligation and contribution obligation applies as for all other self-employed persons.
In exchange for your contributions, you are granted a number of rights.
