Foam is all about photography. Foam is an internationally operating organisation in the field of photography, based in Amsterdam.

Foam informs and inspires the widest possible audience by presenting all facets of contemporary photography.

We accomplish this by organising a range of activities. These vary from exhibitions to publications, debates and educational projects. Foam discovers, develops, defines, publishes and stimulates. In this process, scouting and presenting young, emerging talent is one of our distinguishing qualities. Many activities take place from within the Amsterdam museum, but for specific projects, Foam will also approach an international audience.

Foam frequently organises events abroad, often in close collaboration with our partners. Foam is situated in the heart of the international photography community and aims to be constantly up-to-date. We respond to the latest developments in photography with original yet relevant projects, and are not afraid to break with tradition and strike new paths. In this process, quality, flexibility, innovation, accessibility and entrepreneurship are core values.

It is Foam’s mission to make all facets of photography accessible to the widest possible audience. We strive for a multitude of perspectives. Foam aims to be an inclusive organisation. We still have to take many steps in that endeavour. We are committed to constantly developing and improving our programs, exhibitions, our magazine, education, the collection and the way we work in our team and with our partners.
