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.

forms of collecting, interpreting, and display.

Morocco, Netherlands and Turkey. She was named a Fulbright Scholar
and has been the recipient of Mondriaan Fund support, as well as Prins
Bernard Culture Fund and the European Culture Fund.

From a certain depth in the ocean the color red is no longer perceived — by humans, that is. The world turns dark and blue and silent. I am reminded of this during one of the performances of Lost and Found, The Revival, at Oude Kerk – a church built as an inverted ship. Not to say that the color red is absent — heating lamps turn the St. Sebastian chapel bright red; a person wearing a raspberry coat almost stumbles over one of the stone graves — the church is in fact also a covered graveyard.
