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.

You can decide how much you want to bring to the project.

Héctor Acuña / Frau Diamanda – Autor/a en A*Desk

Héctor Acuña/Frau Diamanda (Lima, 1971)
Translator, writer, audiovisual transvestite artist, drag performer, cultural infidelity, visagist, DJ and possible actress. I specialize in transgender art and multimedia performance and am currently developing a neo-baroque transvestite aesthetic in writing. My main practice is as an audiovisual artist and curator, I work mainly with photography, video, electronic music and multimedia platform. I am interested in the (dis)encounters between bodies and architectures and the ways to concatenate the fluidity of desire and the sexualization of spaces through a gaze of transvestite sexual disobedience.
