I admit though that art is a difficult field to decide on.
There is extensive publication on legal matters of photography in Germany. Have a look at that. And be aware of new legislation and jurisdiction of the recent years.
As indicated above, gaining a mutual understanding with your subject would most likely relieve you from legal proplems.
I am looking for it.
