The debut show to awaken the halls of Katoenhuis with the immersive works of leading Dutch new media artists will be open during Rotterdam Art Week 2024.
Katoenhuis Rotterdam is a hub for Immersive Experiences (IX) and technology in the heart of Rotterdam Makers District (M4H).
Built in 1950 and once known as the “Van Bennekum’s Havenbedrijf Katoenloods”, Katoenhuis is a multifunctional space hosting artist and makers’ studios and working facilities, exhibition, and event spaces. By bringing diverse artists and makers under one roof, Katoenhuis supports makers and developers in research, experimentation, and presentation of immersive experiences, and strengthens the development of the immersive technology sector in Rotterdam and the Netherlands.

Strengthening the IX position together with Koelhuis Eindhoven

The two venues, Katoenhuis Rotterdam and Koelhuis Eindhoven share common values and an industrial legacy that makes the two cities ideal partners in promoting innovation and working with immersive technologies. The presence of a twin in Eindhoven links these two cities, reinforcing their commitment to advancing immersive technologies and maker-driven initiatives. This partnership between these two mainport regions aims to ensure that Rotterdam and Eindhoven will strengthen the Dutch immersive technology landscape while preserving its industrial legacy and securing its position as a leading hub for cutting-edge innovation and creativity internationally.
