We stand for Talent.

We scout, follow and present talented artists in order to stimulate and showcase exceptional quality.

We aim to bring international spotlight to new developments and experimentation in photography.

This ambition is realised by many initiatives, like the biannual Foam Talent Call and the accompanying exhibitions; Foam 3h – the designated exhibition space for new talent in the museum; or by awarding the Foam Paul Huf Award and many more other programmes.

Foam also systematically acquires the work of young talent for our own expanding collection.
