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.

Multidisciplinary: Lost & Found

Marinus de Ruiter

Since 1997, the Lost & Found evenings have established themselves as the place to be for artists and insiders alike. As usual, the contents of tonight’s event have been kept a secret and it can be quite difficult to get in without an invitation. The concept of Lost & Found is to present art, writing, poetry or music that hasn’t found a place in exhibitions and that demands more from the viewer than juts a quick glance. The cheerful ambience at these improvised nights often results in either a warm or very critical reception, depending on the appeal of the presentations.

Tonight is predominantly aimed at artists from the US and the Netherlands. It was preceded by a similar Lost & Found episode on 8 February in the New York gallery Art In General, which featured art by Stuart Bailey and Misha de Ridder, video works by Julika Rudelius and Jill Magid, footage of a performance by Richard Hamilton and a Parisian racing film from the 1979s by Claude Lelouch. (Marnius de Ruiter) De Waag, 21.00, €7.
