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. Singing Comet

    Rosetta’s Plasma Consortium (RPC) has uncovered a mysterious ‘song’ that Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko is singing into space.
    It is being sung at 40-50 millihertz, far below human hearing, which typically picks up sound between 20 Hz and 20 kHz. To make the music audible to the human ear, the frequencies have been increased by a factor of about 10,000.

    Principal investigator Karl-Heinz Glaßmeier, head of Space Physics and Space Sensorics at the Technische Universität Braunschweig, Germany, tells us: “This is exciting because it is completely new to us. We did not expect this and we are still working to understand the physics of what is happening,”

  1. Moonbow

    We leave you now with a moonbow. Moonbows have been mentioned at least since Aristotle. It’s a rainbow not produced by direct sunlight, but by light reflected off the surface of the moon: the moonlight.

  1. Operetta Rumpelstiltskin

    The house at Herengracht 470 was build as a residence around 1670. This room at Goethe-Institut was the dining room. It also served as a place for entertainment and arts. We found some pictures of the Operetta Rumpelstiltskin which premiered here in 1904.
