26/06 until 31/08 2014

La Virreina Lab, Barcelona, Spain

An exhibition of recent works by Gerald Van Der Kaap, curated by Hilde Teerlinck

Gerald Van Der Kaap (Enschede, the Netherlands, 1959) has always worked in a wide range of artistic disciplines and in almost all types of audiovisual media: first photography, video and installations, then computers, television and CD-ROMs, and finally digital video and live video (VJ) performances. His works are characterised by an approach that is both conceptual and experimental, a vantage point that allows him explore the issues, conditions and history of the specific medium. This show is the result of several years spent working in various artists’ residencies around the world.

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.
