With more than 90 member organisations the International Association of Art (IAA) is the world’s largest international NGO of visual artists. Its members regularly exchange information on the working conditions of visual artists in different regions of the world and develop substantiated position reports on the basis of this information. The IAA thus performs its most important task: being a competent partner of UNESCO in all aspects related to the status of the visual artist.

The last great meeting, the 18th General Assembly of the IAA, took place in Pilsen/Czech Republic in 2015 and included 25 delegations composed of artists from all over the world.
