Nederland Labland: Medialabs, Fablabs en Hackerspaces
publication by Virtueel Platform, May 2012
Nederland Labland offers a comprehensive overview of the fifty media labs in the Netherlands, including MAPLAB.
Additionally five representatives of different media labs talk about the propositions, activities and social value of the medialabs.
With more than fifthy medialabs, the Netherlands can be considered a ‘labland’. Virtueel Platform defines the common denominator of the labs as follows: “organisations which bring people together from various backgrounds, to do research which combines media, technology and society in a creative way.”
Nederland Labland is the second publication in the series of overviews of e-culture in the Netherlands, by Virtueel Platform.
Nederland Labland: Medialabs, Fablabs en Hackerspaces is only available in Dutch. Follow the link for more info and to download the PDF version.
Virtueel Platform, NAi and Premsela merged into Het Nieuwe Instituut in January 2013.
