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.

Jara Rocha is a cultural agent in interdependence with others. For example, along with Femke Snelting she is now responsible for the Possible Bodies project; with Nicolas Malevé she is researching the promises of algorithms of artificial vision; together with Xavier Gorgol and Kym Ward she studies the somato-politics of voice production in the Vibes & Leaks workshop series; and with Laura Benítez and Helen Pritchard she is straining the notion of partial repair and exploring the notion of queer analytics with regard to experiences of damage. She often works in the spheres of the politics and aesthetics of the infrastructure and logistics of textual masses, tending to focus on the semiotic-material needs of cultures from a trans*feminist sensitivity. She also explores non-formal forms of learning in collective situations such as the Euraca, Teaching to Transgress, The Relearn Summer School, and The Darmstadt Delegation seminars.
