Han Nefkens acquires ten pieces from Viktor&Rolf
Last week in Paris Viktor&Rolf showed their first Haute Couture collection in 13 years, celebrating the 20th anniversary of the brand and paying tribute to Haute Couture as a laboratory for experimentation and pure creation. The 20 looks of the collection - one look for each year - are executed entirely in a black, technical silk and manipulated in various ways to create the effect of a stone-surface. Every girl in the tableau vivant of the Zen Garden takes on a different pose and each piece is designed specifically for this posture. Han Nefkens acquired ten pieces from this well-received collection for his Han Nefkens Fashion on the Edge program, a collaboration with José Teunissen and Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen. The pieces will be presented in the museum in 2014. For photographs see: Viktor&Rolf Facebook

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.
