As part and parcel of life in a big city, loitering in the streets, you may find lost (and wasted) venues as well as objects lost by others. Lost and found objects have been turned into works of art for more than one hundred years, but exploiting for artistic purposes the possibilities inherent in lost-and-found venues became a trend throughout Europe only in recent years. The PLACCC 2008 of the Budapest Autumn Festival has invited Hungarian and foreign artists to attempt to establish the practice of venue specific art in Hungary. In this series of events British, Dutch, Polish and Hungarian projects show how a theatre performance can find its place in fashionable shopping centers or the fencing hall of a sports establishment, how an art exhibition can give a vacant lot an aesthetic character and how the whole city can be used as a huge stage.
