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.
professor emeritus of cultural anthropology and sociology (NL)
Reimar shows images of the Sakkudei, an isolated tribe on the Mentawai Islands off the coast of Sumatra, with whom he lived for two years in the Sixties. They do not have a classification of occupations, hierarchy or money driven economy. Their society is based on sharing and to please the spirit. When asked, Reimar shows us the tattoo of a birds claw on his foot.
1967-1969, slides, 25 min.
Shown at L&F Thomaskerk (05–10–2012)
