Thomas Rentmeister in Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen
At the end of 2005 Berlin-based German artist Thomas Rentmeister created a retrospective of his work at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam. This exhibition, called ‘Minimal Pop’, was made possible by the H+F Patronage and curated by Sjarel Ex. Thomas Rentmeister is known for its great objects of plastic, made in one color. The coming months, three of his works from Han Nefkens H+F Collection are exhibited in the so called ‘Tuinzaal’ of the museum. These works are on long term loan to Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen. The image shows the museum staff deliberating how to transport one of these big vulnerable works.

The works will be exhibited until approximately mid-March.

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.
