About the grant
Florentine Riem Vis had close affiliations with several cultural institutions and in particular with Foam. She was especially interested in helping people develop their artistic talent. For this grant, Foam scouts worldwide for talented artists with a clear signature and style that is relevant to the contemporary artistic discourse. The artist can work in all photographic genres, including multimedia and interdisciplinary work. One condition to be eligible for the grant is that the work should show a clear relationship with people, in the widest sense of the word. Each year, Florentine Riem Vis’ children will choose the recipient from a shortlist compiled by Foam.
