For this space Foam selects national and international artists who we think have a portfolio that the world should see. The artists are challenged to experiment, surprise and push the limits of photography. Over the years, Foam 3h has become an important meeting place for photographers, artists, students, collectors and other players in the photography field.

Foam welcomes Hydra, a young photography platform based in Mexico City, for a collaborative presentation of young talent from Mexico at Foam 3h. Foam and Hydra present the work of two young talents in Mexican photography: Nelson Morales (1982) and Diego Moreno (1992).
Mexico’s complex history has created an equally complex society. Over time, it has absorbed various different cultures and traditions, combined strong Catholic values with beliefs from other religions, and mixed influences from foreign cultures with indigenous, pre-Hispanic customs. Through photography, both artists visualise and question notions of identity through personal and cultural explorations in their own local environment.
The Foam 3h exhibitions are made possible with support of the Gieskes-Strijbis Fund, the Van Bijlevelt Foundation and Kleurgamma.
Foam is supported by the BankGiro Loterij, De Brauw Blackstone Westbroek, Delta Lloyd, the City of Amsterdam, Olympus and the VandenEnde Foundation.
