Welkom in het Lost & Found archief. Sinds 1997 heeft Lost & Found meer dan 200 avonden voor verdwaalde beelden en geluiden samengesteld. Kunstenaars, schrijvers, wetenschappers en muzikanten laten werk in ontwikkeling zien, experimenteren of tonen werk dat (nog) niet in hun oeuvre past. Een specifiek en uniek podium voor divers en hybride werk dat in een museaal circuit geen plaats heeft.

    Judith de Leeuw presents her documentary about the ‘slightly alcoholic life-guards’. The documentary follows a group of quintessentially Dutch fraternity boys working their summer jobs, and they speak in a lingo that is passed from generation to generation, summer after summer to the next group of boys that replace the previous ones. Their work consists of preventing people from drowning and getting German nudists out of the water before anyone's traumatized. After work they come together around a table in the setting sun and chug beers, talking almost exclusively about the day's work in a way only a group that knows each other solely through work can. The dusk through the gold of the beer, the freckles and the blue eyes, the sun bleached hair with sand in it; the young and the tall huddled together carelessly: it is the most beautiful commercial Calvin Klein never made. And then they sleep with flies on their pasty, hungover faces.
