This handbook aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the multi-faceted art law within the legal framework applicable to South Africa. In four 'phases', it provides answers to legal questions that arise from the initiation of an art project up to its exploitation. It is aimed at both law students who have an academic interest in an in-depth introduction to art law and practitioners from the art world, and is therefore equipped with numerous explanatory examples. The contents were prepared by students of the Art Law Clinic Stellenbosch and revised by the editors mentioned below.
