Foam Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam


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. These vary from exhibitions to publications, debates and educational projects. Foam discovers, develops, defines, publishes and stimulates. Many activities take place from within the Amsterdam museum, but for specific projects, Foam will also approach an international audience. Foam is situated in the heart of the international photography community and aims to be constantly up-to-date. Foam is located in three adjoining, monumental canal side buildings in Amsterdam. It contains unique museum rooms full of world-class photography, all of which are available for hire and for events.
