Find Fence, Amsterdam

by | Mar 22, 2013 | Community, Europe

In Amsterdam, don’t worry if you lose your hat or your keys… they might be waiting for you at a ‘Find Fence’ (Vindhek in Dutch). First appearing in Amsterdam’s Vondelpark in 2006 and since replicated elsewhere, it comes with instructions: “Find your lost object; add a found one.” Annemarieke Weber designed the find fence as an interactive art project to demonstrate the universal values of community, respect and looking after the fellow citizen.  

Website of the Find Fence (in Dutch): (and in English). It was also written up in the NYT Blog & Amsterdam City Tours blog.
