Works from the Han Nefkens H+F Collection on display in DWDD Pop-Up Museum
In this exhibition at Amsterdam’s Allard Pierson Museum, the popular Dutch talk show 'De Wereld Draait Door' has invited some of its regular guests to furnish nine rooms with objects from the depots of eleven Dutch museums. The guest curators and museums are:

Wim T. Schippers – University Museum Groningen
Sander van de Pavert – Mauritshuis
Beatrice de Graaf – National Military Museum
Daan Roosegaarde – The National Maritime Museum
Robbert Dijkgraaf – Teylers Museum and Museum Boerhaave
Paulien Cornelisse – National Museum of Ethnology and the Tropenmuseum
Sywert van Lienden – Bonnefanten Museum
Carice van Houten – Kröller-Müller Museum

Famous Dutch comedian and television personality Paul de Leeuw was the curator for a room filled with works from the collection of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen. Not coincidentally, several works he has chosen belong to the Han Nefkens H+F Collection. This second edition of the DWDD Pop-Up Museum runs from 29 January until 31 May 2016.

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.
