Foam welcomes the African Artists’ Foundation for a collaborative presentation of young African talent at Foam 3h.

The African Artists’ Foundation (AAF) is a non-profit organisation based in Nigeria, dedicated to the promotion and development of contemporary African art. Together, Foam and the AAF present the work of three young photographers from Kenya and Nigeria: M┼ęchiri Njenga (1985), Osborne Macharia (1986) and Kadara Enyeasi (1994). Their works present fantastical worlds in which past, present, future, fact and fiction converge. Their stylized versions of reality render ambiguous what it is we are looking at: utopia, dystopia or real life?

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 Afro-Americans and in his work addressed themes such as poverty, marginalisation and injustice.

Foam Magazine #47: Propaganda, is now available. Propaganda, the manipulation of political opinion by means of carefully selected information or disinformation, is common to all eras. But rarely was the playing field so ambiguous and the players so hard to identify. Now more than ever, therefore, we regard it as of the greatest importance to devote an issue of Foam Magazine to ‘Propaganda.’
