Sleepover in the Bush of Ghosts
Do you want to spend a night within Paul Bogaers’ 'Bush of Ghosts'? That can be arranged, but first you have to answer the follow question: who is joining you on this adventure and why?

The most original motivation wins a special prize: an overnight stay for two people on Saturday 16 January within the exhibition space by Paul Bogaers - My Life in the Bush of Ghosts in Foam.

Congratulations to Aida Bilajbegovic! Thanks to your creative motivation, you’ve won a sleepover in the exhibition Paul Bogaers - My Life in the Bush of Ghosts in Foam. We are touched by your story and hope you will have a great time on Saturday with Carlos. 

You can participate in four easy steps:
1. Write your motivation
2. Open the entry form
3. Select 'free entry' and add 'two persons'
4. Enter your details and motivation (comments field) and confirm

Upon arrival, we will bring you to your special room for the night. The main room within the exhibition is turned into a beautiful room by Hutspot Amsterdam. You will find a large Coco-Mat (double)bed, bedside tables surrounded by all the artworks. A host will be available at your service for the evening and night.

You will start the night with a private tour through the exhibition. The museum is at your disposal for the complete night so take the flashlight and roam around. Explore the rooms to compare all the different faces of the sculptures or make up stories from your bed by looking at the masks on the wall. You will be invited for breakfast in the morning. At ten o'clock the museum opens to the public and the Bush of Ghosts awakens for everyone else to see.

This night is made possible by Hutspot Amsterdam and Foam in collaboration with Coco-Mat.

In the exhibition My Life in the Bush of Ghosts, Foam presents work by Paul Bogaers (Tilburg, 1961) which he created in the last five years. During this period, his work has developed from two-dimensional studies to the three-dimensional domain of assemblage, sculpture and installation, where photography plays a vital role. Bogaers also uses paper mâché – a material not often embraced by fine artists.
