We of Subbacultcha not only care about your ears, but your eyes as well. Foam Museum is one of our favorite spots to trigger our creativity and imagination, all while getting to know the newest trends within contemporary photography.

To make our winter days a bit better, Foam’s 3h space upstairs hosts the exhibition Tomorrow of Yesterday presenting to the public the latest work of Stefanie Moshammer (1988, Austria). The artist is well known within the art world, exhibiting in Austria, France, Portugal, and Italy. In 2016 her work was also part of the Talent Issue of Foam Magazine and the internationally travelling exhibition Foam Talent.

In November 2016 and March 2017, Stefanie Moshammer visited the Haitian island Île-à-Vache. This series shows how behind the façade of the beautiful Carribean dream, with its deep blue ocean, waving palms, and colourful streets there is a hidden place of unfulfilled promises. The same beautiful surroundings are also coloured by litter and waste, from plastic bottles and bags to polysrytene wrappings. In Tomorrow of Yesterday, the artist explores notions of paradise, between Western ideals, yesterday’s promises, and everyday lives of the people who live in the island.

Stefanie Moshammer is the first recipient of the Florentine Riem Vis Grant. The grant was established in memory of Florentine Riem Vis (1959-2016) with the goal of supporting young photographic talents in the development of their artistic careers.
