Foam Lab celebrates ‘imperfections’ with Deleted / Seen

About the author
Sabrina (who is old as fuck) has more energy than a Duracell bunny, and uses it to dance in the newest clubs, eat too much junk food, play all the videogames, examine apps and shop - even though she has more than enough clothes. Sorry Earth.

Anton Corbijn once said “I still make analog photographs because I like the imperfections. It’s a part of photography, a part of life”. Foam Lab agrees with this. In an age where every image has to be perfect, they celebrate the mistakes. Deleted/ Seen, an evening in Foam, will show you how special happy accidents can be.

Artist Rosa Menkman will give a small lecture about Glitch, an art movement that makes mistakes on purpose. Rosa is quite skilled in this, and she will show us live how Glitch works. Never heard of it? Just google ‘Glitch and Kanye West’ to see some magic. You can also take a tour through the New York Times Magazine Photographs exposition with the image editor of NRC.Next, Sterre Sprengers, while she explains the choices an image editor makes daily. Of course there are many more things you can do while drinking and dancing, like deleting Facebook friends with ‘The Deletor’ or images with the Eddie the Eagle Museum.

Or take a workshop with Leontien Prenger, which will be all about leaving things out in images. The flyer below is by this young photographer, who graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld academy, so I’m going to bet she knows her stuff.

I don’t know about you, but it sounds like a good time to me. So we would like you to be there as well! That’s why we’re giving away 2 x 2 tickets. All you have to do is answer the following question on Facebook: Which video by Kanye West is made in glitch style?
