If there’s something we love as much as music the answer is art. To continue our cultural adventures around our beloved Amsterdam, Foam Museum remains the perfect spot to hide from the cold and get insights into the latest developments within the contemporary photographic scene.
This winter, Foam presents three new shows: Next Level: Anouk Kruithof – ¡Aguas!; Winner Foam Paul Huf Award: Romain Mader – The Following is a True Story; and Foam 3h: Stefanie Moshammer – Tomorrow of Yesterday. To celebrate their launch, Foam has organized a public opening where audience and artists can meet and discuss. The artists will present their works, and you can enjoy the evening immersed into the art world and its network.
As part of the exhibition series Next Level, Foam hosts ¡Aguas! the first major solo museum exhibition by Anouk Kruithof (1981, Dordrecht). Kruithof’s approach to photography has resulted into a great variety of works: from photo collages to video animations, installations, sculptures, and much more.
The Following is a True Story is an exhibition of the work of the winner of the Foam Paul Huf Award 2017, Romain Mader (1988, Switzerland). His works plays with the tension between reality and fiction addressing serious topics such as loneliness and love with humour and irony.
Foam presents the work of Stefanie Moshammer (1988, Austria) in the exhibition Tomorrow of Yesterday. In her work, taken during her visit to the Haitian island Île-à-Vache, Moshammer researches notions of paradise, between Western ideals, yesterday’s promises, and the everyday lives of the people living there.
