Now that spring has started and we are all at home, 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.
Follow the footsteps of Viviane Sassen and Anne de Vries, among others, and figure out what creative choices they made before photographing their subjects. Look closely at all the elements in the given photos; from background to composition, what is inside and outside the frame, and which props and family members or roommates you need to enclose for the remake.
Participants with the most exciting remakes will win the latest issue of Foam Magazine. Every week we upload a new photo. Keep an eye on this page or Instagram.
