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 shows 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.
