Antwerp. Artworker Foundation. 1971–1972
Artworker Foundation (ARFO) was a socio-cultural organisation founded by Hugo Heyrman in Antwerp in 1971.

During the 1960s, Heyrman profiled himself as an avant-garde artist with Happenings, film and video experiments. He published with Panamarenko the magazine 'Happening News' (6 issues), and after founding the Artworker Foundation he publishes this magazine, the 'Artworker Star' (3 issues). In 1970-73 he made a 'Continental Video & Film Tour' with his 'Mobile Museum of Modern Media' through Belgium, Germany, France and the Netherlands. For his 'Street-Life' paintings, he was elected laureate of the 'Jeune Peinture Belge' (1974) at the Palais des Beaux-arts, Brussels.
