    Han Nefkens (1954) grows up in Rotterdam as the eldest of five children. His father, Harry Nefkens, is a successful architect and earns a lot of money in real estate. His mother, Josephine, is the pivot of the family. But when Han is twelve, his mother becomes ill and dies several years later. In Mexico, where Han Nefkens settles as journalist and radio reporter, he meets Felipe, the love of his life. Their happiness, however, is put to the test by Han’s infection with HIV in 1987. While those dear to him die around him from AIDS (including his brother Victor), Han succeeds in suppressing the virus. He feels he is privileged - and responsible. Han Nefkens enjoys sharing his happiness, his fortune and his love of art with other people. He does this by working together with museums, stimulating artists to take the development of their imagination a step further, by financing AIDS research and by breaking down the silence around HIV. Hanneke Groenteman is a friend of Han Nefkens and visited him in Barcelona, where he now lives. This video portrait is made on the occasion of the book and the exhibition Han Nefkens - 10 years benefactor. The exhibition can be seen at Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen from 25 June to 2 October 2011.

    • The seven pillars of H+F

      Han Nefkens began acquiring and collecting contemporary art in 1999. In his search for things that really matter, he stumbled across the lack of financial possibilities available to European museums and the isolation of non-Western artists through lack of visibility. On the other hand, he discovered the enormous eloquence that art can have, which made it possible to discuss subjects that would otherwise be ignored, hushed up. Subjects such as HIV and AIDS. For building bridges that could connect areas of interest that seem to be far apart, Nefkens has apparently started with the construction of the pillars. At this moment in time - June 2011 - there are seven of them: H+F Collectie, ArtAids, Fundació Han Nefkens, H+F Mecenaat, H+F Curatorial Grant, H+F Fashion on the Edge and the pen of Nefkens. In this video there is an example of each of these pillars.
