Natascha Sadr Haghighian in Capella MACBA Barcelona, ES
# 04 Natascha Sadr Haghighian. De paso 07/07/2011 - 12/12/2011, Capella MACBA, Barcelona

The work of Natascha Sadr focuses on the idea of 'representation', its significance and its use in Western culture. On approaching her work, spectators are faced with an attractive image that is seductive but difficult to describe. Through an analysis of the elements that make up the core of the work, her installations probe a series of issues that are always topical, through an approach that is diametrically opposite to the way they are dealt with in the mainstream media.
Exhibition organized by the Museu d'Art Contemporani de Barcelona and coproduced together with the HAN NEFKENS Foundation.

Curator: Chus Martínez.

The ArtAids foundation was set up in 2006 at Han Nefkens’ initiative. ArtAids fights AIDS with the power of art as its most important weapon. ArtAids invites leading artists to produce work that is inspired by AIDS and related problems. These works of art are used to raise the public’s consciousness and to encourage their involvement.

Fundació Han Nefkens

The Han Nefkens Foundation is a private non-profit organisation that was set up in Barcelona in 2009 with the aim of promoting the production of contemporary artworks. The mission is to stimulate artistic creation in Barcelona by offering international artists an opportunity to create artworks and interventions in the city, and to promote other fields of contemporary creation.


Han Nefkens started to collect art in 2000. The H+F Collection, named after himself and his partner Felipe, is in long-term loan to various museums in The Netherlands and abroad. Nowadays Han Nefkens is not only active as a collector but also as an initiator of international art projects, often in collaboration with museums and other art institutions.
