The Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation presents the group exhibition “Foam Talent 2022”. The show is part of a cooperation with the Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam Foam. It comprises photographic, film based and installative works by 20 contemporary photographers from 14 nations. The artists were selected as part of Foam's young talent programme which the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation is supporting since 2017. The artistic positions presented in the exhibition are distinguished by the innovative use of the medium of photography and deal with essential issues of our time. With unsparing openness, the artists dare to critically question ideological structures and deconstruct the resulting political, social, and ecological consequences for the planet, humanity, and the individual. They thereby provide intimate insights into the realities of their lives, connect personal experience to an overall social context, and confront visitors with their own position within a globalized world. Current discourses find their way into the exhibition, including the challenges of climate change, issues of identity, gender and body, discrimination, displacement as well as the far reaching consequences of a capitalist economy. All works presented are characterized by their unique visual language while illustrating the current state as well as future trends and themes of contemporary photography.
