Come join Kanak & me for a coffee and the Brassaï photo exhibit at Amsterdam’s FOAM museum. Foam is proud to present the first retrospective of Brassaï in the Netherlands. The French photographer of Hungarian descent is considered a key figure of 20th-century photography.
UPDATED: Since there’s a lot of interest (people on Waiting list), Kanak will co-host a SECOND group at the FOAM Café, starting 30 minutes later (11:30am). The FOAM Cafe is too small to handle large groups, so keeping our crowd below 15 people is preferred.
If you are on the WAITING List (or on the YES List but prefer starting later), you are welcome to join Kanak at 11:30am, instead of 11:00am.

Brassaï (1899- 1984) created countless iconic images of 1930s Parisian life. He was famous for capturing the grittier aspects of the city, but also documented high society, including the ballet, opera, and intellectuals – among them his friends and contemporaries like Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí and Henri Matisse. The exhibition at Foam traces his career with over 170 vintage prints, plus a selection of drawings, a sculpture and documentary material.
Brassaï gathers many of the artistic facets of the photographer, from photos to drawings of female nudes. It is organized in twelve thematic sections: Paris by Day, and by Night, Minotaure, Graffiti, Society, Places and Things, Personages, Sleep, Pleasures, Body of a Woman, Portraits – Artists, Writers, Friends and The Street. Each is very different from the next – reflecting the diversity of Brassaï’s photographic work.
Looking forward to seeing you,
