Welcome to the Lost & Found archive. Since 1997, over 200 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.

    A girl is standing in the middle of the room with the stroboscope next to her. The light goes on and indeed flickers in quick succession, and also fiercely. She has two sm-like objects in both hands. Two billets with a number of iron rings at the ends. She waves back and forth with it. There is a disturbing image as the strobe flickers so hard. Two other girls are on the other side of the room and read a poem from a leaf.
