Out of Storage
De Timmerfabriek, Maastricht, NL 25 June 2011 / 25 March 2012
Out of Storage is developed by Marres Projects in association with FRAC Nord-Pas de Calais and is described by Hilde Teerlinck (Director FRAC) and Guus Beumer (Director Marres) as “a miraculous marriage between chance, significance and partnership”. Alongside an exhibition that presents a large number of works from the collection of FRAC Nord-Pas de Calais, Out of Storage consists of a program of events entitled Provisoire & Définitif – a reference to a work by Maurizio Nannucci that is presented in the exhibition. This program consists of educational projects, research, publications, workshops, debates, lectures and performances, which reflect on several models for a museum. The project also includes various partnerships, amongst others with Maastricht University and H+F Collection. From the H+F Collection works of Gerald Van der Kaap, Masato Nakamura, Elina Brotherus and Adel Abdessemed are exhibited.

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.
