Free Tour in Dutch Sign Language Foam Talent 2020
Photography is best discovered in your own language, which is why we offer tours by museum teachers in Dutch Sign Language.

Foam is the first museum in the Netherlands to regularly schedule tours in Dutch Sign Language (SLN). Our deaf museum teacher will ask questions and challenges you to look closely at the work. The tour in SLN at Foam offers a unique way for the deaf and hard of hearing to discuss photography in their own language.

This Summer, we will explore the current exhibition Foam Talent 2020 in groups of 4 people. Each year, Foam invites photographers to submit their portfolios via the Foam Talent Call, an international search for exceptionally talented photographers under the age of 35. This year 19 artists were selected as Foam Talents. Although Foam Talent symbolises a rich range of genres and uses of photography, the edition of Foam Talent 2020 is characterised by (sometimes lengthy) research, in which the role of the portrait is a recurring theme.
