The Netherlands most influential cultural icons

The good old NRC has drawn up its first ever list of the 100 most influential Dutch people in international culture.

Does the list have any value apart from a little self congratulatory appeal? Koolhaas himself has his doubts. ‘I think it is pointless to group people according to nationality at a time when Europe is becoming something new. In an ideological sense, I feel European.’

His prize is a double page advertising spread in the NRC, to be donated to the charity of his choice. Interesting to see what he comes up with.
