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.

The leader shows fragments of an interview of Hans Ulrich Obrist with Maurizio Cattelan, who set up the Oblomov Foundation, which in a way was an institution to teach failure. They got money from different donors and trustees and gave it to an artist who would accept not to exhibit for a whole year. The artist would get the money, but he had to disappear from the art world. It was never awarded, they couldn't find an artist who wanted to accept the grant.
