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.

The Living and the Dead Ensemble is a group of artists, performers and poets from Haiti, France and the United Kingdom. They initially came together in Haiti 2017, to produce their Haitian Creole translation and performance of the play "Monsieur Toussaint" by Édouard Glissant. Initiated from an original idea by Louis Henderson, the Ensemble’s first film "OUVERTURES" premiered in the Forum section of Berlinale in 2020, where it was awarded a FIPRESCI special mention. Their work explores different possible methods of telling the history and the present from a Caribbean perspective. The Ensemble produces texts, performances, films and installations. The Ensemble are: Mackenson Bijou, Rossi Jacques Casimir, Dieuvela Cherestal, James Desiris, Louis Henderson, Léonard Jean Baptiste, Cynthia Maignan, Sophonie Maignan, Olivier Marboeuf, Mimétik Nèg.
