Romain Mader

The Following is a True Story

The Following is a True Story

16 Nov 2017

17 Nov 2017 – 7 Feb 2018
Mader won the Foam Paul Huf Award for his series Ekaterina, depicting the search for a bride in the fictitious city of Ekaterina. The series is part of the exhibition, which consists of several projects that jointly form a narrative about a naive young man in search of happiness. Mader plays with the tension between reality and fiction. His work stands out for the humour and irony with which he addresses serious topics such as loneliness, love, exploitation and the female body. Beneath the seemi… more

17 Nov 2017 – 28 Jan 2018
Foam presents the first major solo museum exhibition by Anouk Kruithof (1981, Dordrecht) as part of the exhibition series Next Level.



The work of Kruithof is a refreshingly original contribution to contemporary photography. Approaching the medium from a great variety of angles, her works are equally versatile, ranging from photo collages to video animations, installations, sculptures, publications, performances and public interventions. Common premise is a fascination for the online represent… more

Stefanie Moshammer

Tomorrow of Yesterday

Tomorrow of Yesterday

16 Nov 2017

17 Nov 2017 – 14 Jan 2018
In November 2016 and March 2017 Stefanie Moshammer visited the Haitian island Île-à-Vache. What looks like the Caribbean dream straight from a stock photograph, with waving palms and white beaches, is also a place of unfulfilled promises. Besides the beautiful surroundings of the deep blue ocean, bright green nature and colourful streets, cities and sea shores are also coloured by litter and waste, from plastic bottles and bags to polystyrene wrappings. In her series Tomorrow of Yes… more

André Kertész

Mirroring Life

Mirroring Life

15 Sep 2017 – 10 Jan 2018
André Kertész (1894-1985) is renowned for the exceptional contribution he made to the visual language of 20th-century photography with his poetic work. Foam presents a retrospective of his oeuvre, examining his early work created in his homeland of Hungary, his time in Paris – where between 1925 and 1936, he was a leading figure in avant-garde photography – through to New York, where he lived for nearly fifty years. In an interview, Kertész once said: “Ever… more

Before the Law

21 Jul – 10 Sep 2017
In collaboration with NEU NOW, Foam presents the work of Dutch visual artist Robert Glas (NL, 1986) in the exhibition Before the Law.

His projects scrutinise legislative processes around immigration and personal identification. His practice is an ongoing investigation into the technologies used by nation-states to monitor the movement of people across territories. This process results in short films, photographs and installations, a selection of which will be on display in Foam 3h, Fo… more

I am you. Selected works 1942-1978

16 Jun – 6 Sep 2017
The camera can be a powerful weapon against repression, racism, violence, and inequality. The American photographer Gordon Parks (1912-2006) referred to the camera as his “weapon of choice” and used photography to expose the deep divisions in American society. Parks was an important champion of equal rights for African Americans and in his work addressed themes such as poverty, marginalisation and injustice. Aside from his iconic portraits of legends like Martin Luther King, he espec… more

16 Jun – 27 Aug 2017
In his work, Adam Jeppesen (b. 1978) searches for the silence in desolate landscapes and the physical elements the artist surrenders to.

Foam presents the exhibition Out of Camp by the Danish artist in the summer of 2017. Foam presents five recent series: Folded (2014-present), Scatter (2014-2016), Ghosts (2013-2014), Parts (2011-2014) and XCopy (2011-2012).

No Joke

No Joke

23 Jun – 27 Aug 2017
In the collaborative project titled No Joke, artists Roger Ballen (1950, VS) and Asger Carlsen (1973, DK) explore the more sinister sides of the human psyche. Together the duo produced 37 images, without ever working in the same studio at the same time: their creative exchange and co-creation has been a purely online affair. Their menacing work evokes a sense of anxiety and longing that is usually experienced only in dreams.

Although Roger Ballen lives in Johannesburg and Asger Carlsen in New Y… more

Collectivism. Collectives and their

21 Apr – 18 Jun 2017
Over recent years, in all kinds of places around the globe, collectives have been formed that are not tied to specific institutes or to ways of organising activities that are imposed from above. There is a growing tendency among photographers and artists as well to join forces and organise themselves. Many such collectives are based on do-it-yourself principles of ‘cut out the middle man’.

The American photographer William Eggleston (1939, Memphis Tennessee, US) is widely considered one of the leading photographers of the past decades. He has been a pioneer of colour photography from the mid-1960s onwards, and transformed everyday America into a photogenic subject. In the exhibition William Eggleston – Los Alamos, Foam displays 75 photographs that were taken on various road trips through the southern states of America between 1966 and 1974.

In the exhibition Matter, Foam presents new three-dimensional work by Daisuke Yokota (Saitama, b. 1983). Three installations revolve around the tactile aspects of photography, in which the outcome of the artwork is not determined by the camera, but by experiments with the material forms of the medium. Previously in his artistic practice Yokota would re-use images that he took years ago, but that keep re-appearing in different ways through various analogue and digital processes. In these new work… more

The exhibition Dominique Lambert / Le Pourquoi Pas? presents two series by the French photographer Stéphanie Solinas. In her work, Solinas attempts to materialise abstract concepts such as identity or the spiritual in a systematic and factual manner. She employs photography as a part of a diverse array of research methods – al… more

Naked youths, mostly Chinese and every one as beautiful and unashamed as the next, take centre stage in the work of Ren Hang. Swans, peacocks, fish and snakes, as well as cherries, apples, flowers, plants and trees are all employed as absurd yet poetic acces… more

Close to the skin of her objects, Weir’s intimate approach is what marks her work in any context, be it a border zone in a politically charged area, or in a room with a model. The title of this exhibition refers to what is ultimately dissolved in the work of Harley Weir. But even as she crosses the lines of what usually holds people apart, on pe… more

2 Dec 2016 – 19 Feb 2017
Black Chalk and White Charcoal or the Myth of the Absent Matter is an exhibition of the monumental and mysterious work of Brazilian Sofia Borges (b. Ribeirão Preto, 1984).
In her own intuitive manner, Borges photographs paintings, drawings, sculptures, maps, fossils, stuffed animals and dioramas, all of which are models of reality that we use as ways of trying to get a grip on the world around us and, by doing so, to give it meaning.

Borges photographs details and carefully selects the … more

The meaning of a photo is often not as clear as it seems. We can read the image, but do we know how to read a visual image? What is a picture, an image anyway? Does it tell us all the same story, or do we look at it from different points of view?

Between 1915 and 1959, American studio photographer Mike Disfarmer (1884-1959) made portraits of the residents of Heber Springs, a small town in rural Arkansas. Only after his death did his work become known internationally and regarded as a typical example of classic American portrait photography.

Born into a prosperous middle-class family in Paris, Lartigue focused his camera on the carefree existence in and around his own family circle. Lartigue is above all famous for his spectacular photos of car races, aeroplanes and people and animals in motion. But his breath-taking colour photography is less well known. Lartigue, Life in Colour reveals this seldom-seen aspect of his oeuvre.

New Paintings is a mediation on the beauty of bright colours, reflected by simple objects, plants and the human body, which Delbrouck encountered during his various travels. Inspired by painting, he aims to capture the flow of life through his photography, photobooks and installations.

Thomas Kuijpers

When the Twins were still beautiful

When the Twins were still beautiful

18 Dec 2015 – 9 Mar 2016
Visual artist Thomas Kuijpers shows a diorama devoted to the Twin Towers. As a modern-day Don Quixote, using an absurd collection of kitsch images and objects, the artist recreates the iconic imagery of New York’s skyline pre-9/11. At first sight, it seems a naïve attempt to reconstruct this romantic image from before the dramatic one that is so strongly engrained in our collective memory that it is nearly impossible to imagine otherwise.

It all started with the purchase of a paintin… more

Foam shows an overview of the exceptional and intense work of an American photographer, Francesca Woodman (1958-1981). Woodman used photography as an extremely personal means of expression, as if wearing her skin inside out, making herself the only subject of her work. Her photographs were shown in a number of major international exhibitions and they have inspired artists all over the world.

Before committing suicide at the age of twenty-two, Woodman explored themes such as gender, representati… more

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 photo combinations to the three-dimensional domain of assemblage, sculpture and installation, in which photography plays a vital role.

With New Arrivals, Bruno Zhu (Portugal, 1991) remodels the Foam 3h library into another reading room – one that flattens the representation of reading itself. Twisting time and space, both physically and conceptually, the installation juxtaposes visual motifs from the private space into the public and vice versa. This way, Zhu light-heartedly explores his fascination for photography’s ambivalent symbol as surface and object, representation and appropriation.During New Arrivals, the F… more

When the young French photographer Jean-Vincent Simonet (Lyon, 1991) came across the book Les Chants de Maldoror (The Songs of Maldoror), he felt hugely attracted to the dark, theatrical and transgressive character. The cutting-edge book praising youth revolt, blasphemy and the victory of dream over reality was published in 1869 by Comte de Lautréamont. Jean-Vincent Simonet decided to revive the literary enigma by transforming the classic novel into a contemporary book and exhibition Mald… more

Knibbeler creates a world that follows his own logic, where associative relationships and imagination play a key part. He is inspired by subjects such as flying, aeroplanes, aerodynamics and climatology.

Foam presents an exceptional and, until now, little-known theme in the voluminous oeuvre of the well-known Dutch painter Carel Willink. In the 1930s, he began to photograph the Amsterdam sky from his apartment and studio, overlooking the famous Rijksmuseum, to use as material for sketches. These clouded skies were hidden away for years in his archive of negatives managed by his widow Sylvia Willink-Quiël. There they stayed until last year when Willem van Zoetendaal, photography expert, boo… more

Photographer Cristina De Middel (1975, Spain) chose as the starting point for her project The Afronauts a little-known episode from Zambia's history. This was a space programme started by an educator which suddenly entered Zambia in the space race with the United States and Russia. Its aim was to put the first African on the moon. Due to a lack of financial resources, however, the ambitious initiative was doomed to failure. Fifty years later, De Middel reconstructs this story, using her own… more

What if you always work together, always share everything, but do not have a system? Photographers’ duo Otto Kaan turned this practical problem into an aesthetic solution. In Foam 3h the duo presents four new projects in the exhibition Works. Otto Kaan consists of Berend Otto (1985) and Guus Kaandorp (1986).

Her bold subject matter and photographic approach produced a body of work that is often shocking in its purity, in its steadfast celebration of things as they are. Her gift for rendering strange those things we consider most familiar, and for uncovering the familiar within the exotic, enlarges our understanding of ourselves.

Arbus found most of her subjects in New York City, a place that she explored as both a known geography … more

Karl Blossfeldt

Solo Exhibition

Photography in reverse

27 Nov 2009 – 21 Feb 2010

Five young Dutch photographers: Constant Dullaart, Katja Mater, Jaap Scheeren, Corriëtte Schoenaerts and Anne de Vries use photography more as a medium, rather than a self-evident end product. In the exhibition Photography – in reverse they present mostly new work in which they combine different dis… more

On show in the exhibition is work that first and foremost can be appreciated for its abstract, formal qualities, such as form, colour and composition. Only afterward does the viewer recognise … more
