The Foam Talent Call is an international search for artists between the ages of 18 and 35 who make use of the medium of photography in fresh or striking ways. Selected artists will have their work published in Foam Magazine and participate in a touring exhibition, among other career-building opportunities.

Foam Talent Call 2018

Devoted to showcasing new names and interesting tendencies, the Talent issue is regarded as a yearly phenomenon closely watched by photography and creative professionals alike.

Extensive international opportunities
The publication of the Talent issue marks the start of a year of touring exhibitions that give physical form to the vision of these talented image makers. Artists work alongside a curatorial team to actualise their project within a collective setting, while staying true to their personal technique and practice. Once realised, the exhibition travels during key moments of the art/photography agenda to locations such as Amsterdam, Frankfurt, London, New York and Paris, where the work on display can be appreciated by a burgeoning and vibrant audience.

The Foam Talent Call 2018 also offers, for the first time, the chance for selected works by one of the Foam Talents to be acquired by the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation and added to their prestigious collection of contemporary photography, the Art Collection Deutsche Börse.
