Revisiting Time / Le point de non retour
Dunkirk, FR, La Plate-Forme 24 September / 04 December 2011
In the framework of the third edition of the H+F Curatorial Grant, Guest Curator Irene Aristazábal proposes the exhibition Revisiting Time with works of the collection of the FRAC Nord-Pas de Calais and works on loan at the FRAC from the H+F Collection. This selection is based on the idea of point of no return. The works reflect temporal tipping points that radically transform the course of future events and thus have or will affect the future.

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.
