II Jornada del Arte: Políticas Culturales en las Artes Visuales

II Jornada del Arte: Políticas Culturales en las Artes Visuales


Cultural policy can be defined as the set of mobilized means and actions oriented towards the achievement of fines, criteria and actions for the instances of the community -people, groups and institutions which, because of their power, have a capacity to intervene in the cultural life of the aforementioned community.

This second edition aims to create an effective debate involving political parties, representatives of public and private institutions and other operators in the sector, with a decentralized vision and, of course, including the artists themselves. And, as a consequence of the debate, to propose concrete actions to take.

Fide’s Art Day focuses on Spanish cultural policies in regard to the visual arts, which encompass the traditional plastic arts – drawing, painting, sculpture and engraving, as well as the art of new media, although with the outlook extended to other cultural manifestations and, of course , to other countries and cultures.

Within the framework of cultural policies, this Art Day will approach the main legal and fiscal issues that affect artists and art related operations in our country.

After the success of the first edition, Fide’s Art Day has become a meeting point for all professionals in the sector, where they discuss various topics, draw conclusions and even raise proposals for improving the system.

Academic direction: Rafael Mateu de Ros, Founding Partner of Ramón y Cajal Abogados, Director of the Department of Art Law. Lawyer of the Surplus State and Member of Fide’s Academic Council.
