Foam x Pakhuis de Zwijger: Jonathas de Andrade

This spring, Foam will collaborate with Pakhuis de Zwijger on their ongoing Fotokroniek series. In this special three-part series, we will connect the exhibited artists at Foam with two other experts.

During each conversation, we will look at local issues that share international parallels and that connect communities globally. Guest speakers support the conversation by helping to define these parallels based on their expertise.

29 April
Jonathas de Andrade

On 29 April, we will focus on the work of Jonathas de Andrade who gives marginalised groups a voice in a historical, postcolonial context. We will place the current exhibition Staging Resistance next to the stories of film director Sandra Beerends and activist and ambassador for West-Papua, Julia Jouwe. Both highlight the stories of individuals and collectives underrepresented in mainstream accounts that deal with the Dutch colonial past.
