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 first presentation of the evening was by Peter de Vries of the Hembrug Museum Zaandam. Mr. de Vries comes from a family that all worked in the weapons industry at the factory complex Hembrugterrein in Zaandam. He himself worked for 35 years in the same building where we were having dinner, where they made ammunition and missiles for the war effort. He picked up the 'NL Love Missile', which had a painted pink top, from his table of assorted missiles. Mr. de Vries stood proud, like a teenager with his collection of deadly fireworks.
