Amsterdam’s newest addition to digital art, the NXT MUSEUM

Located in an old tv studio space on the north side of the city you can find Amsterdam‘s newest addition to digital art, the NXT MUSEUM. This museum is dedicated to new media art and emergent techniques and it will redefine how we experience art.

The building has the perfect construct for a museum that focuses on audiovisual media works where sound and light are often the main ingredients.  The massive force of power, the extremely high ceilings, and thick walls have the ideal conditions for this new concept.

The NXT museum is a true added value to Amsterdam due to its unique concept focussing on digital art and the relevance of multidisciplinary collaborations between national and international artists, designers, technologists, and musicians. Aside from the exhibition, the museum offers two areas called NXT Lab and NXT stage that are giving space to new work with faster regularity to be able to respond to pressing socio-political issues. This specific aspect of the museum shows the importance of looking at the new generation and shaping the future together.
