Datascape Cultuur

An infographic of the Dutch arts world

The number of people watching an arts program on a quiet Sunday night equals the number of visitors a large theater draws annually (!). These and other eye-openers are presented in the Datascape Cultuur. This publication cum infographic of 7 metres long describes and visualizes the state of the Dutch arts world, and offers many new perspectives. The datascape draws from more than 200 research reports on arts and culture – the first time that such a large and wide diversity of research data has been considered integrally. Johan Idema initiated the Datascape Cultuur and co-produced it with designer Hendrik-Jan Grievink.
