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.

The lights of the room went out, a spot in the middle went on. The music of the film Eyes Wide Shut reverberated through the space. We heard footsteps, ringing of bells, coming closer and closer to us. A man emerged from the darkness. It was Taka Taka. Nude. Tape tightly tied around his body. His white-painted face looked frightening now that he had also turned his eyes white, leaving only his eye white to be seen. It looked genuinely scary, intimidating and brilliant.
From a good Excel presentation we suddenly ended up in a ceremony that nobody knew what the ceremony would be like. Taka Taka picks up a microphone and starts a sermon in Greek. It was convincing, especially with the enigmatic music of Jocelyn Pook (the composer of Eyes Wide Shut) in the background. Shortly thereafter a second man entered the room. He entered the hall in a large black robe with a gold mask on which two horns were attached. Taka Taka came closer, preaching to him, striking a cross, and suddenly it seemed as if the man was possessed in the black robe. He shook and shook his head. Increasingly harder until he tore himself out of the garment and, like his opponent, showed himself naked to the public. Like a fragile deer he stood there, spinning a circle around his own axis with his arms spread out. He presented himself to us. It was nice to see. In the meantime Taka continued to talk through Taka, faster and faster. He began to rap more and more. The beat suddenly turned into a sweet, contemporary beat, and Taka Taka had now been beaten up. Meanwhile, the other man was heavily taped with red tape. He started with his dick.
