In this episode of the ArtTactic Podcast, we speak with Helen Stoilas, web editor at The Art Newspaper, about her article on the recent push to enact droit de suite or artists’ resale rights in the US. First, Helen explains the Artists’ Rights Society’s position behind this initiative as well as provides details regarding their proposed legislation. She then describes what parties within the US art world are strongly in favor of or opposed to bringing droit de suite to the US. Lastly, Helen updates us on the status of droit de suite in the UK, including an expansion of the rule in 2012 that will include certain artists’ estates.
