If you want to create a title page (which may not be your intention),
why not simply

\definemakeup[titlepage][align=middle]
\defineoverlay[COW][\externalfigure[cow]]

\starttext
\setupbackgrounds[page][background=COW]
\starttitlepagemakeup
        A title
\stoptitlepagemakeup
\setupbackgrounds[page][background=]
\setuppagenumbering[alternative=doublesided,way=bytext]
\dorecurse{5}{\input knuth\par}
\stoptext


Question (for Wolfgang):
Why did you use "paper" rather than "page" (what is the difference)?
