Bureau of Lost Causes, archive

These two Rolodexes are part of the Bureau of Lost Causes

The first Rolodex contains 172 hand-stamped index cards, each listing expressions associated with the experience of being lost, as well as things or aspects that can be lost in life.

The second index card catalogues handwritten stories of women artists who have experienced the loss or intentional disappearance of their work, whether due to external factors or conscious artistic choices. This collection sheds light on the struggles and resilience of these women artists and stimulates discussions about gender inequality, artistic choices and the preservation of artistic works.
