“When you share, you are not alone”. Han Nefkens Founder and President of the ArtAids Foundation.

In You are not alone, 14 artists from around the world helped to fight stigmatisation by reappraising the causes, consequences and current context of Aids as well as the ways of fighting it.

The ArtAids Foundation had produced works specifically designed for the exhibition by eleven  internationally acclaimed artists whose work does not generally approach the subject of Aids. The selected artists were: Deimantas Narkevicius (Lithuania), Latifa Echakhck (Morocco), Danh Vo (Vietnam), Christodoulos Panayiotou (Cyprus), Lorena Zilleruelo (Chile),  Elmgreen & Dragset (Denmark and Norway), Be Our Friend Studio (Thailand), Ohm Phanpiroj (Thailand) and  Pratchaya Phinthong (Thailand), Otto Berchem (United States- the Netherland).

The new works were  presented with a selection of pieces recently incorporated in the ArtAids collection by David Goldblatt (South Africa), Sutee Junavichayanont (Thailand), and Juul Hondius (the Netherlands).

The work of Matthew Darbyshire (United Kingdom), intended  to provide a space for reflection about Aids, was presented at the end of the exhibition. A view of the illness by Pepe Espaliú, a Spanish artist who died from Aids in 1993, appeared by way of an introduction.
