There are a few basic requirements for getting into the KSK:

  • You're an artist or a publicist. You work professionally as a self-employed/freelance artist/writer with the purpose of earning a living. This is your main source of income. For a full list of job descriptions click here.

  • You earn more than 3,900 per year. Your income from artistic activities (revenue minus expenses) must be above €3,900 per year (if you've been an artist for longer than three years). If you don't meet these minimums, then you might be able to get signed up with some extra checks. 

  • You're not actually a business owner in disguise. You may employ at most one person, but no more. This is meant for self-employed artists and publicists only.
