Why Artists Need 60-page Contracts

Artist Florian Ortkrass on why written agreements help with art installations.

I’m amazed how on this planet we can’t seem to get along. It seems impossible to get out of this loop of retaliation. It’s a bit the same way when we’re dealing with all the lawyers on our installations. It’s interesting that for everyone to behave and respect other people’s intentions, we need a 60-page document. And it’s important to cover every point, otherwise someone will definitely try to get an advantage.
