Olympus Fellowship 2020
Foam stands for talent. We scout, follow and present new generations of talented image-makers worldwide in order to recognise and inspire exceptional work. Our goal is to devote timely, focused attention to new relevant developments in photography.
Discover our online activities around the exhibition On Rape: A History of Misogyny, Chapter Two. In the series, Abril presents conceptual portraits and testimonies that together symbolise the current impunity of institutional rape.
Laia Abril and Carmen Winant both use in-depth research and mixed-media installations to develop projects around underexposed phenomena, mostly related to current and historical feminist ideals. The online Zoom conversation is the continuation of an expansive email conversation between the two, examining their methods of storytelling, the position of the artist relating to their subject and questions the relationship between art and activism.
Get a unique insight into the process behind the current exhibition. Artist Laia Abril explains why she made certain decisions and tells more about the aim of the project and its sensitivities.
Get inspired by last week's takeover by Laia Abril. Through a series of posts, Abril provides insight into the processes, sensitivities and challenges during the making of this intriguing photography series.
