‘The Extended View’ at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen
This compact collection presentation with modern and contemporary artworks focuses on a basic principle within the visual arts: perception. While observation lies at the root of understanding art, the act of looking itself is the subject of the works exhibited. The artists take us off guard visually: the works are not representations of reality, but provide a window on another reality.

'Wait to Wait' by Andro Wekua, purchased with the support of Han Nefkens H+F Patronage, is part of the exhibition.

Until November 3 2013

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.
