With the support of Ammodo, Foam has been organising the exhibition series Next Level since 2015.
The series aims to introduce a broad public to innovative art created by relatively young visual makers who make ground-breaking use of the medium of photography.
The exhibitions developed for Next Level are often bold, provocative and surprising, for regular visitors and professionals alike. The exhibitions are often highly topical as well. The featured artists use photography as a medium to respond to contemporary global and societal developments in the wake of digitisation and new technologies. The result is a heightened awareness among the visitors of how images influence our everyday life.
Next Level is a major project designed to give an impetus to artists with notable accomplishments to their name, but who are not so well known to the general public.

Ammodo, founded in 2011, is a non-profit organization that initiates and supports projects for the development of art and science. Ammodo focuses primarily on visual arts, performing arts and fundamental science.
The purpose of the activities of Ammodo is to contribute to the creation, presentation and development of art that is experimental and questioning in nature. To achieve this goal, Ammodo works with various institutions such as Foam, the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, EYE, Boijmans Van Beuningen Museum, Witte de With, Van Abbe Museum, Holland Festival, Nederlands Dans Theater and Toneelgroep Amsterdam. Ammodo focuses on a broad scope within the visual arts and performing arts. The extent to which the project is innovative and of high quality determines the support offered.
