Original title: De virtuele kunstkar
The Dutch satisfy their interest in culture by visiting artistic institutions and exhibitions or by practising the arts themselves. They also use media to meet their cultural needs. In particular, the rise of new media such as the Internet has led to an explosive increase in the possibilities in this regard. How many Dutch adults use media to search for cultural information, to watch or listen to recordings or to buy tickets? How much do they communicate about culture via media, and do they use media to distribute cultural content such as photos, films, music and texts they have created themselves? Are there any differences in the use of old and new media for cultural purposes, and how can these be explained? These are the kinds of questions that are addressed in this report, based on research carried out among Dutch adults in 2009.
