Jeff Wall on long-term loan to the Boijmans

The H+F Collection recently gave Jeff Wall's Children on long-term loan to the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam (NL).

Children, which consists of 9 circular light boxes with transparencies, was originally conceived for the Children's Pavilion, a joint project by Jeff Wall and Dan Graham. In the 1990s, the Rotterdam district Ommoord considered building this pavilion, but in the end it abandoned the plan.

On 12 January 2008, the choir of the Mozaïekschool in Rotterdam performed at the museum to mark the arrival of Children.

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.
