A*DESK has been offering since 2002 contents about criticism and contemporary art. A*DESK has become consolidated thanks to all those who have believed in the project, all those who have followed us, debating, participating and collaborating. Many people have collaborated with A*DESK, and continue to do so. Their efforts, knowledge and belief in the project are what make it grow internationally. At A*DESK we have also generated work for over one hundred professionals in culture, from small collaborations with reviews and classes, to more prolonged and intense collaborations.

At A*DESK we believe in the need for free and universal access to culture and knowledge. We want to carry on being independent, remaining open to more ideas and opinions. If you believe in A*DESK, we need your backing to be able to continue. You can now participate in the project by supporting it. You can choose how much you want to contribute to the project.

El Palomar – Autor/a en A*Desk

El Palomar is an artistic collective founded in 2013 and formed by Ama Sánchez (Campillos, Málaga, 1980) and R. Marcos Mota (Tarragona, 1988), with the premise of bringing together a cultural panorama with equal rights and opportunities for all those who are part of sexual and gender dissidence. It is a pioneering project on an international level, born out of self-determination and self-management with a view to institutional collaboration, with a horizontal pedagogical will and collective empowerment. Their practice explores different languages and disciplines, and hybridises artistic production and curating. In their work, they are committed to processes that challenge culture in terms of form and content, that take into account their social scene and propose points of access and empathy to the public.

They have received awards such as the Miquel Casablancas Prize and the Ojo Crítico prize for the visual arts. Their recent work includes the curatorial project El gran grito (at the Kunsthaus Baselland), the work Schreber is a Woman (originally presented at the 11th Berlin Biennale, at the KW, and later at MACBA, the Leslie-Lohman Museum in New York, the Franfkurten Kunstwerein, the NS-Dokuzentrum München and La Térmica), and There must be justice, where they hybridise production and curatorship.
