Specialising in poetry and the crossovers between literature and other art forms, Perdu is particulary interested in (theoretical) reflection on, and innovative developments within the field of literature.

With the help of a team of volunteers, Perdu organises literary events called De Avonden (The Evenings), and owns a specialised poetry bookstore and a small publishing house. Perdu also has a theatre space which is available for hire.
