On Sunday 13 May, Mother's Day, come strike your best pose with mom. During the walk-in workshop inspired by the work of Keïta, a selection of objects and backdrops are at your disposal to make your most memorable photograph of or with your mother. To celebrate Mother's Day, we are giving away 3 free Foam Fan+ Memberships, with which you can visit exhibitions and events at Foam all year round.
* The 3 recipients will be selected from all participating mothers and announced at noon on Monday 14 May.
