Club Foam

For young photography and art enthusiasts


Club Foam is an active group of photography and art enthusiasts between the ages of 25 and 40 years. The Club enables you expand your knowledge of photography, discover surprising cultural sites and be part of a growing and diverse network of young, often international photography, art and culture enthusiasts. Your membership will also directly and actively support Foam's projects.

Club Foam = All about Photography
Club Foam immerses you in the world of photography. Foam has a varied programme that will open the doors to the international photography scene for you. It covers all aspects of photography, from master classes on collecting taught by curators and collectors, to meetings with photographers during visits to studios and galleries, exclusive private tours of Foam outside opening hours, a personal portrait every year by a professional photographer and the annual Club Foam dinner, during which we will update you on the most recent trends in photography. You will also receive free entry to our international partners' premises and a passe-partout to the international photography fair Unseen.

Support photography
Club Foam has a great deal to offer you, but your membership supports Foam too. Thanks to your contribution, Foam can develop new projects and continue with our successful initiatives. Club Foam regularly organizes activities related to projects financed by our members. From launching exhibitions for young talent to acquiring new collections. This lets you directly experience the results of your support.

Small scale | Limited number of invitations
Club Foam is involved and personal. The activities programme is inspiring and informative, but above all it is small scale. These small-scale activities often provide space for only a limited number of members, so we have decided to put a cap on that number. Together with its ambassadors, Foam is currently inviting a select group of new people to join the Club.

How does it work?
Membership to Club Foam costs €450 a year or €39 a month. Members are allowed to bring a guest to many of the activities. Part of your membership fee is a donation, which Foam uses to develop new activities. Thanks to special rules for donations to cultural institutions, this can generate useful tax benefits.
