In line with national policy relating to the corona virus, Lost & Found stops its activities until further notice. Please be 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.

  1. Ode to the Sea - Art from Guantánamo Bay

    Detainees at the United States military prison camp known as Guantánamo Bay have made art from the time they arrived. Some of these evocative works are exhibited now in New York, made by men held without trial, some for nearly 15 years, who paint the sea again and again although they cannot reach it. 
    They can smell it, they can ear it, but they cannot see it.
