Opening OBA & Foam: Reading Images
Foam Photography Museum presents OBA & Foam: Reading Images with photography from its own collection.

This event is in Dutch.

This is the opening event for the exhibition OBA & Foam: Reading Images

The meaning of a photo is often not as clear as it seems. We can read the image, but do we know how? What is a picture, an image, anyway? Does it tell the same story to all of us, or do we all look at it from a different point of view?

Participanting artists: Paul Kooiker, Isabelle Wenzel, Peter Puklus, Sjoerd Knibbeler, Blommers en Schumm, Daniëlle van Ark, Raphaël Dallaporta, Richard Mosse, Mikhael Subotzky, Daniel Gordon, Krista van der Niet, Nicholas Gottlund, Léonie Hampton, WassinkLundgren, Sanne Peper, Ola Lanko, Lorenzo Vitturi, Jan Hoek, Anne de Vries en Corriette Schoenaerts.


  • Welcome by Martin Berendse, Director OBA
  • Notes on the exhibition by Marloes Krijnen, director Foam
