why Club Foam?

Club Foam takes you inside the world of photography: from masterclasses in photography collecting by curators and collectors, to meetings with photographers during a studio or gallery visit, exclusive private tours at Foam outside opening hours, an annual portrait by a professional photographer, and the Club Foam dinner, where we bring you up to date on the latest trends in photography.

Club Foam is involved and personal. The programme of activities is inspiring and innovative, but most of all, small-scale. Some activities are for the entire club, like our annual dinner, while other activities offer space to a limited amount of members. This way, getting to know Foam and each other is easy.

tax benefits

The Club Foam membership fee is €450 per year or €39 per month. Many activities allow you to bring a guest. The greater part of your membership fee (€300) is a donation, which Foam utilises in the development of new activities. Thanks to special tax incentives for donations to cultural institutions, this can amount to substantial fiscal benefits. By committing to five years of membership you will (in most cases) be eligible for an additional fiscal advantage, reducing the net fee to €307 or €261 per year. This special fiscal advantage will be in place through at least 2023.
