A screening of Zhou Tao’s Blue and Red at ‘Nuit des bains’ in Genève
The MEG (Musée d’ethnographie de Genève) presents Zhou Tao’s Blue and Red, winner of the Han Nefkens/BACC Asian Art Award 2014. Blue and Red shifts its gaze from public squares in the city centers of Guangzhou and Bangkok, to metal mines and villages in the mountains and valleys of southern China. The film focuses on those moments during the recent anti-governmental protests in Bangkok. The artist’s eye, poetic yet critical, meets the anthropological observation. The film will be introduced by Hilde Teerlinck, President and Curator of the Han Nefkens Foundation, and Boris Wastiau, Director of the MEG.

ArtAids

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.

H+F

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.
