Viktor & Rolf surprise Han Nefkens with a wonderful present
On Friday evening December 4, during a preview of the exhibition of three Van Gogh Girls by Viktor & Rolf at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Viktor & Rolf surprised Han Nefkens with a wonderful present: Look 19 from the Haute Couture Red Carpet Collection, Autumn/Winter 2014. Two other creations from this highly original collection were previously purchased by Han Nefkens and donated to Boijmans. They were featured in the acclaimed exhibition The Future of Fashion is Now.

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.
