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.

10 Andújar se borra

A*DESK

Es feo leer comentarios críticos fuera de lugar, insultos personales o sufrir ataques continuados por parte de misteriosos anónimos. En el mundo del arte el rumor campa por sus anchas pero lo escrito en la red queda. Uno de los lugares (ahora mismo ya no tanto) donde destacaba la furia era e-barcelona, un proyecto del artista Daniel García Andújar. Andújar, uno de los artistas seleccionados en el pabellón catalán en Venecia, vicepresidente de la Asociación de Artistas de Catalunya y poseedor de una excelente obra artística, es el responsable de esta plataforma que lleva como subtítulo “democratitzem la democràcia”.

En e-barcelona muchos han recibido, se han mencionado familias e insultado por tendencias sexuales.

Hace unas semanas, alguien (también fuera de lugar en el ataque personal) dirigía su rabia contra el propio Andújar. Los comentarios duraron menos de un día y fueron eliminados de inmediato. Comentarios parecidos dirigidos a otras personas siguen en e-barcelona. Será que la democracia no es igual si es tuya.

A*DESK, Independent Institute of Criticism and Contemporary Art, is dedicated to learning, publishing and research related to the criticism of contemporary art. Taking the view that critical thought makes individuals free, its mission is to defend actively the importance of criticism: to generate debate about contemporary art, to enable each individual to establish their own opinion and by doing so promote culture.
