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 selflessly with A*DESK, and continue to do so. Their efforts, knowledge and belief in the project are what make it grow. 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.

Manuela has focussed on the creation of spaces for research, production and exhibition and considers collaboration an integral part of her practice. In 2010 she set up Rivet, a curatorial office that responds to what emerges in artistic production and studies ways to destabilise the object-subject relation as a fundamental structure of experience. In 2014 she inaugurated Zarigüeya/Alabado Contemporáneo, a Project that activates relations between contemporary art and the collection of pre-Columbian art of the Casa del Alabado in Quito Ecuador, amongst others. Manuela was the founder and directed the independent space the 29 enchufes in Madrid between 2001 and 2009, and currently is the curator at the Tamayo Museum in Mexico.
