About the exhibition

Foam proudly presents the work of a new generation of artists in the group exhibition Foam Talent 2022. The 20 participating artists look closely at both the world around us, and the one within - without shying away from discomfort or pain. Climate change, political conflict, discrimination, displacement, and social justice issues: the works address the pressing problems of our times and remind us that photography has the potential to capture the unspeakable.
