REBOOT: Pioneering Digital Art


On view from October 2023, REBOOT: Pioneering Digital Art is an exhibition featuring key works from 1960 to 2000, plus new interpretations by contemporary makers. REBOOT reveals the influence of digital technology on art and society. Alongside groundbreaking works by more than 20 artists, including Edward Ihnatowicz, Dick Raaijmakers, Driessens & Verstappen and Debra Solomon, there are new works by artist Jonas Lund, VR artist Ali Eslami, game designer Ekim Tan and others.

7 October 2023 - 31 March 2024

Central themes in the exhibition are identity and beauty in a digital world, the impact of major tech companies and the fusion of human and machine.

Activities around REBOOT include regular tours and a 'family expedition' exploring the exhibition for kids and their families, who can also enjoy a special edition of Familiefest, a day when families get to be VIPs.

There is also a programme around collecting, preserving and making digital art viewable, offering a deeper exploration of the subject matter. For more information, please see the Nieuwe Instituut’s online agenda.

Visit REBOOT from 8 October 2023 to 1 April 2024.

Nieuwe Instituut and digital culture platform LI-MA collectively present the exhibition REBOOT: Pioneering Digital Art. Featuring key works from the Netherlands from 1960 to 2000, plus new work by contemporary makers, REBOOT reveals the influence of digital technology on art and society. LI-MA's Digital Care trajectory functions as a strong basis for the run-up of this public exhibition.

Digital Care and REBOOT are supported by Creative Industries Fund NL, Mondriaan Fund and Network Archives Design and Digital Culture.
