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.

performance, 1825/2016, 3 min
Two ladies with cat masks perform 'The Duetto buffo di due gatti' also known as 'Le Duo des Chats' with Corné Mooijbroeck at the grand piano.
The piece is attributed to Gioachino Rossini, it was not actually written by him, but it is instead a compilation written in1825 that draws principally on his 1816 opera, Otello. Hubert Hunt putatively claims that the compiler was Robert Lucas de Pearsall, who for this purpose adopted the pseudonym 'G. Berthold'.
