The fifteenth edition of Foam Magazine’s Talent Issue presents a selection of outstanding artists, each in their own way feeling the pulse of our times. In spite of the many challenges humankind was confronted with in 2020, we counted the highest number of submissions yet: 1803 entries, from 72 countries — each of which represented a message in a bottle from different parts of the world, which feels more fractured than ever. This year’s common, underlying theme is a close, sharp look at one of the most important subjects, the human condition. While being born out of the Covid-19 pandemic, this issue is also a beautiful, hopeful and refreshing statement about the possibilities our medium offers, and the exciting future ahead. We look forward to celebrating new beginnings, and new horizons.
