Take on the challenge! Remake the work of Dutch photographers

Now spring has started and we are all at home waiting, working or studying. It takes adjustments and creativity to make it through the day. Inspired by @tussenkunstenquarantaine and past Foam workshops, each week we'll challenge you to reinterpret an artwork from the collection or exhibitions in your own way.
