Panel: Talent development within photography

Wed 19:30 · Amsterdam · Panel ·

This evening we will discuss current developments in contemporary photography and the scouting of young photography talent in the context of the FOAM Talent Call.

What themes do young image-makers make visible in their work? And how do you select the most promising photography talents of the future? In the exhibition, we look at the work of this new generation of artists. Their works address the most pressing issues of our time: climate change, political conflicts, discrimination, displacement and social injustice, reminding us that photography is able to capture what cannot be captured in words.

Artist Talk: Bas Kosters 'Sincerely Yours'

Fri 17:30 · Amsterdam · Artist Talk ·

End your week with an inspiring Artist Talk by versatile artist Bas Kosters. The exhibition 'Sincerely yours' showcases his latest series of personal and loving drawings about being self-aware of emotions.

Complementing the exhibition is an extensive selection of autonomous work showing Kosters' inner world. This world, known mainly from his quirky, sensational fashion shows from the beginning of his artistic career, has now been translating into drawings, rich tapestries, glass objects, soft sculptures and paintings for several years.

We will talk to the artist about his multifaceted artistic practice and learn from him more about our emotional self-awareness. We will also reflect in detail on the development of his artistic practice.

17.30 - 18.00 Walk-in and welcome with a drink
18.00 - 18.45 Artist Talk by Bas Kosters
18.45 - 19.30 Opportunity to view the exhibition
Location: Droog Design Amsterdam

Ever since he graduated, Bas Kosters has been working with his studio on a variety of design and art assignments. This enables him to further develop and deepen his autonomous work. The direction of his work is increasingly shifting from applied to autonomous. For instance, he recently worked with the Nationaal Glasmuseum Leerdam on glass objects, published a book of 100 portraits, was able to create new work especially for various museum exhibitions and is currently working as an 'artist in residence' at the European Ceramic Work Centre.
