Foam Talent 2021 Digital
Following the award-winning first edition in 2020, Foam presents a brand new online exhibition celebrating a new generation of image-makers.
A new way of looking
Foam Talent 2021 | Digital is a multi-media platform showcasing the work of 20 artists that were selected through the annual Foam Talent Call. Their projects are translated into the digital realm, supported by audio, video and interactive elements. Liberating the photographs from their frames and taking them beyond the museum walls, the exhibition pushes the boundaries of the medium and explores the outlines of its future form.
"It connects facets of the extensive Foam Talent programme, offering podcasts, Zoom talks, limited Editions and more. The visitor is invited to explore and immerse themselves in the endless possibilities and perspectives that contemporary photography has to offer. A new way of looking
The fifteenth edition of Foam Talent presents a selection of 20 outstanding artists, each in their own way feeling the pulse of our times. In spite of the many challenges humankind was confronted with in 2020, Foam counted the highest number of submissions for the annual Talent call yet: 1803 entries, from 75 countries – each of which presents a message in a bottle from different parts of the world.
This year’s Talents present a close, sharp look at one of the most important subjects today: the human condition. While several of the submissions were born out of the Covid-19 pandemic, they offer beautiful, hopeful and refreshing statements on the power of photography to share our experience and – possibly – to effect a shift in perspective.
During the Free Guided Tour, you will visit the exhibitions in a group of at most 15 people. The museum teacher strikes a balance between posing questions and providing information, helping you discover the story of the photographer, the subject and the context of the exhibitions together.
