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.
