THE LIVING ROOM OF HAARLEM

Hans Bossmann, both artist and an exhibition creator, made his fantasy come true by creating an expo where art, design and entertainment do not only come together in the same room, but are also being used as if being at home. For making his concept stronger, during 5 weeks he actually lives in the exhibition itself, where he cooks and eats, and yes, even sleeps! And, honestly, how great is it opening your eyes in the morning, and looking up to Haarlem’s famous St. Bavo church!

Hans Bossmann, kunstenaar en tentoonstellingsmaker liet zijn droom werkelijk worden door niet alleen kunst, design en entertainment in ééndezelfde ruimte samen te laten komen, maar tevens daadwerkelijk te laten gebruiken door haar bezoekers. Om zijn concept te versterken, woont hij gedurende 5 weken in de daadwerkelijke tentoonstelling, waarin hij kookt en eet, maar ook, jawel, midden in de expositie slaapt! En zeg nou eerlijk, er zijn ergere dingen in de ochtend wakker worden, en naar de St. Bavo kerk van Haarlem omhoog te kijken, nietwaar?!
