Tehran-geles by Arash Nassiri shown in Lyon
The prize winning film Tehran-geles by Arash Nassiri, recently acquired for the Han Nefkens H+F Collection is part of 'Le parfait flâneur', an extramural project from Palais de Tokyo in resonance with the 13th Biennale de Lyon.

The Lyon Biennale is an occasion for Palais de Tokyo, in partnership with the Fondation Pierre Bergé – Yves Saint Laurent, to present a selection of young artists who are French or based in France.

During the course of a visit, which has been conceived as a stroll, the public is invited to become flâneurs in the huge Halle Girard, a former boiler-making plant built in 1857, which was converted a few years ago into a “paintball” venue. The space has been left untouched, and still bears vestiges of its industrial past, as well as traces of paint from the games played there.

From 8 September until 4 October 2015.

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.
