A Room for Two at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen
Experience an exclusive night in the Revolving Hotel Room

From 6 February 2010

Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen and artist Carsten Höller are offering visitors a unique opportunity to spend a night in the museum. Guests staying in the sculpture Revolving Hotel Room will have day and night access to the whole museum and will be able to relax in this extraordinary work of art. The Guggenheim Museum in New York exhibited the hotel room last year with great success.

Guests staying in the Revolving Hotel Room will be able to enjoy a night-time visit to highlights from Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen’s collection accompanied by a private butler. From 11 a.m. each day the hotel room once again becomes part of Carsten Höller’s Divided Divided exhibition and the hotel guests will find themselves surrounded by museum visitors. The hotel room is perfect for people who want to spend an unforgettable night in the museum.

Revolving Hotel Room
The Revolving Hotel Room consists of three revolving discs that carry a fully furnished hotel room. A wardrobe, a desk and chairs and a double bed share the discs. A fourth disc supports the other three, which revolve very slowly. Höller exhibited this hotel room previously in Kun¬st¬haus Bregenz in 2008 and in the Guggenheim Museum in New York in 2008-2009.

Divided Divided
Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen will present this exclusive hotel room as part of Carsten Höller’s exhibition. He creates a new 1,500 m2 installation especially for the museum, on show from 6 February to 25 April 2010.
