ABOUT DISFARMER - THE VINTAGE PRINTS
Between 1915 and 1959, American studio photographer Mike Disfarmer (1884-1959) made portraits of the residents of Heber Springs, a small town in rural Arkansas. Only after his death did his work become known internationally and regarded as a typical example of classic American portrait photography. Foam is staging a major retrospective, with 182 vintage photographs, including a number of 8 x 10 inch prints that have never been exhibited before.

ABOUT TRACES OF THE FAMILIAR
Foam presents the artwork of the Dutch duo Jaya Pelupessy (1989) and Felix van Dam (1986) in Foam 3h. Fascinated by how photography constructs images, they developed a new technique with a camera that combines photography with silkscreen printing. Alongside the results of their experiments – prints that oscillate between silkscreen print and photograph and visually recall the history of photography – they present abstracted images that picture the working process.
