Welcome to the Lost & Found archive. Since 1997, over 150 sessions of stray images and sound have been organised. Artists, writers, scientists and musicians present work in progress, experiment or present work that doesn't fit into their oeuvre (yet). A specific and unique stage for diverse and hybrid works which don't fit comfortably into galleries or museums.

Rosetta’s Plasma Consortium (RPC) has uncovered a mysterious ‘song’ that Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko is singing into space.
It is being sung at 40-50 millihertz, far below human hearing, which typically picks up sound between 20 Hz and 20 kHz. To make the music audible to the human ear, the frequencies have been increased by a factor of about 10,000.
Principal investigator Karl-Heinz Glaßmeier, head of Space Physics and Space Sensorics at the Technische Universität Braunschweig, Germany, tells us: “This is exciting because it is completely new to us. We did not expect this and we are still working to understand the physics of what is happening,”

We leave you now with a moonbow. Moonbows have been mentioned at least since Aristotle. It’s a rainbow not produced by direct sunlight, but by light reflected off the surface of the moon: the moonlight.

The house at Herengracht 470 was build as a residence around 1670. This room at Goethe-Institut was the dining room. It also served as a place for entertainment and arts. We found some pictures of the Operetta Rumpelstiltskin which premiered here in 1904.
