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.

Another contribution of our secret correspondent. The film was on shown in the same exhibition as Marina Abramovic' Balkan Erotic Epic, which we showed 6 March. Valie's film is a bold experiment in manipulation, playing off of emotions like discomfort and disgust to ask the viewer to relinquish old notions of sexuality and assert a new feminist envisioning. First we look at a roaring vulva and then at a bleeding vulva.
1973, 16mm, 10 min
