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.

Malena Manrique – Autor/a en A*Desk

Malena Manrique received her PhD in Art History at the University of Zaragoza, following her studies in art theory and literature of the Spanish Golden Age. Her desire to flee from the corset of textual criticism threw her into Goya’s arms, but she soon realized that talking to the dead could become a monologue: instead of medium she preferred to become a mediator. Since 2002 she lives in Italy. She is co-founder and curator of the Garabato Foundation.
