Videos from the H+F Collection
Hotel Room Mate Óscar, Madrid, ES 15 / 17 February 2012
In the context of the International Contemporary Art Fair ARCO Madrid, the Madrilenian Room Mate Hotel Óscar and its famous terrace are part of the exhibition circuit.

On 15, 16 and 17 February, anyone who visits the terrace in the evening can enjoy important video works by the artists Sam Taylor-Wood, Lorena Zilleruelo and Fabien Rigobert.

The works belong to Han Nefkens’ H+F Collection or are commissioned by his ArtAids Foundation. Han Nefkens is the winner of the 2012 ARCO Award for International Private Art Collecting.

An event like this fits into the vision of Room Mate Hotels’ founder Kike Sarasola, who wants to bring art to the streets or more specific to his hotels. Anyone who visits the Óscar terrace will have a very special evening.

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.
