Ukraine/ 5.3 Sector specific legislation  

5.3.1 Visual and applied arts

There is no specific law regulating the sphere of visual and applied arts.

The Law of Ukraine on Folk Arts and Crafts (2001, with amendments in 2004 and 2012) regulates relations in folk arts and crafts.

The Law on Education and government resolutions define the norms for students in visual arts and applied arts colleges and departments. The new Law on Higher Education approved by the parliament on December 2014 provides more autonomy and independence in decision-making to educational establishments, including culture and arts institutes.

The Law on State Procurements, revised annually, determines the amount for public purchasing of works of art. However, this procedure, especially in the field of visual and applied arts, is out-of-dated and ambiguous, provoking numerous conflict situations recently. Thus, the Ministry of Culture has stated that it would concentrate attention in the near future on the improvement of regulations determining the amount of an author's royalty for artworks acquired by state funds.
