Huis Marseille at Paris Photo
Huis Marseille is one of the three museums invited to present a selection of their collections at Paris Photo. From Han Nefkens H+F Collection photographs by Rinko Kawauchi and Luisa Lambri are exhibited. These works are in long-term loan to the museum. Huis Marseille will also be showing works by Jeff Cowen and Craigie Horsfield. The intensification of an image – by means of doubling, mirroring, reflection and layering – will be the central theme of the presentation. Paris Photo will be held from 15 to 18 November in the Grand Palais.

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.
