NewImageThe New Explorers Guide to Dutch Digital Culture offers an overview of the mayor players in the field of digital art and culture in the Netherlands. With over 150 organisations, ranging from artists’ communities to triple-A gaming studios, this guide offers an excellent starting point for making new connections. 


Medialabs are the studios and research laboratories of our contemporary society. These are spaces where artists, digital specialists, scientists and theoreticians, ‘geeks’ and media producers work side by side to reflect and create the latest technological developments. 

Independent Game companies

In collaboration with Dutch Game Garden and Control Magazine 20 independent (art focused) game companies were selected. 

New media- and game festivals

The Netherlands has a rich landscape of media festivals. At these festivals a wider audience is confronted with these cutting-edge expressive explorations. The media festivals have become the new museums, presenting and preserving media works. The book includes over 40 festivals.
