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.

Ruben takes us through the church, showing the waves on the ceiling, symbolising the travels form the Jewish people through the red see to a new world. They were locked in a system of slavery and exploitation, just like we are sometimes locked in our system. He pointed to the Zuidas. Then he pointed out the high window on the roof and told us that the light shining in there during the day always reminds him of breaking patterns.

Ruben arrived at the Theatrum only at the break, somebody form the audience summarizes the first part of the program for him. Ruben tells he wants to go back to text, the book, in the church and in society. Not only the bible, but also literature; really reading. He initiated reading table, where he reads a famous work of literature with a small group of people. There he read Oblomov. Tonight, he reads form Oblomov, the man who famously doesn't;t get out of bed the first 150 pages of the book. Oblomov shouts that he's not interested in literature; Real life is not to be described like that -only that of gross, manifest malice and love of ridicule. 'Give me man, and man alone.'
