Sounds by Disco Arabesquo

Experience the exhibition Blessings from Mousganistan in a new way. We will present a playlist by Disco Arabesquo featuring old school Hip-Hop, Maghreb Pop, Algerian Folk and European electronica that was inspired by Mous Lamrabat's work. The playlist can be heard during Museumnacht Amsterdam, adding musical texture to Mous' colourful images.

Activities

Flash Acts

Will you join one of the flash acts at Foam? During the night, the artists of Meervaart Dance and Theatre Lab will start singing, dancing or reciting a spoken word when you least expect it. Inspired by the photography in the museum, the artists will wander the halls looking for visitors to join them on their journey.

Time: 19.00 - 00.00 hrs

Sit With Us Challenge

Tired of walking around all night? Need a break from sitting? During the evening, we invite you to sit differently by contributing to the Ritsch Sisters' ongoing project The Act of Sitting. Get inspired by their innovative sitting instructions and take your own picture (anywhere) in the museum. Who knows? Maybe your sitting portrait will be published on Foam's website.

Time: 19.00 - 00.00 hrs
