Foam Magazine #13: Searching

Featuring six established artists whose work is instantly recognisable, this issue presents atypical work. Capitalizing upon a radically new visual culture and conveying a strong wish to experiment and break free from standard expectations.

Wolfgang Tillmans presents Lighter / Manual three-dimensional abstract pictures, with each image feeding back into a wider network of references – both internal and external to his own work. In a personal manifesto ‘photography against greed’ Hans Aarsman photographed his possessions in a preventative measure to curb his compulsive desire to possess things. Fascinated by creative possibilities Stephen Shore has produced over sixty iPhoto books, all featuring images made in a single day, this issue features 11-9-2006.

Also included, an extensive interview with Jen Bekman, discussing why and how the business of the art world needs to change. Plus an ‘On My Mind’ feature from 6 cultural figures talking about images on their minds and plenty of book reviews.
